Train crash in Netherlands leaves many wounded, at least one dead

| No Comments

A 68-year-old woman is dead and many others are wounded as a result of a train collision near Amsterdam Saturday.
BBC News said this crash is the worst train accident to occur in the country in 50 years.
"It sounded like a transformer went off, I thought our circuit had broken," said Max Tau in a CNN news report. Tau lives about 18 meters from the tracks where the crash occurred.
The reason for the crash is still being investigated and officials are looking to the black boxes that were in each train for some direction as to what might have caused the collision, according to the BBC. The top two theories are mechanical malfunction or human error.
Whatever the cause, the damage has been done with 117 people overall sustaining injury, including one of the drivers.
