Images: Train Crash in Paris

At least six dead, dozens injured, in France's deadliest train crash in years

Friday, July 12, 2013

BRETIGNY-SUR-ORGE, France (AP) — A train carrying hundreds of passengers derailed and crashed into a station outside Paris on Friday on the eve of a major holiday weekend. At least six people were killed and dozens were injured, including nine in critical condition, the Interior Ministry said.

The crash at Bretigny-sur-Orge station was the deadliest in France in years, and President Francois Hollande abandoned plans in the capital to visit the scene.

Some cars slid toward the station, crushing part of the metallic roof over the platform. Images from the scene on French television showed gnarled metal and shards on the platform, and debris from the crash clogging the stairwell leading beneath the platform.
