Last Friday, at around 12:15 p.m., a regional train from Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Munich derailed just before Farchant. Four women and a 13-year-old from the region died.
Most recently, more than 40 injuries were mentioned. In the past week, a number of other injuries were subsequently reported to the investigators, the police explained.
In the investigation into the deadly train accident, the police are now turning to the population. The Soko “Zug” is looking for passengers from the accident train who have not yet had contact with the police, said the police headquarters in Upper Bavaria South on Sunday.
The officials also called on witnesses to provide pictures and videos for the investigation. An upload portal has been set up for this purpose.
The cause of the accident is unclear. The approximately 50 employees of the police Soko “Zug” are working on the investigation. Dozens of passengers have already been questioned as witnesses.
