The two trains crashed into each other at around 16:40 CET (15:40 GMT). The reasons for the incident are as yet unclear.
Two S-Bahn trains have collided near Schäftlarn, Munich in Germany leaving at least one person dead and around 40 more injured. A train driver is also reportedly trapped in the wreckage. The force of the impact derailed at least one of the trains, Bild has reported, citing witnesses.
The trains were travelling along a single track with one of them going to Munich and the other to Wolfratshausen in Bavaria. The reason for the collision remains unknown as police continue their investigation.
The affected train track remains closed for the time being as police investigate the site.
A similar incident nearly happened on the same line in August 2021. Two trains moving along the S7 line nearly ran into each other around four kilometres away from Icking Station. The trains stopped around 150 metres from each other due to both of them managing to brake in time thanks to low speed.
