A train has derailed in the Paris suburb of Bretigny-sur-Orge causing "many casualties", authorities say.
The Paris prefect's office said a "red alert" plan had been activated and the Interior ministry confirmed the accident.
A police source said there were reports of at least one dead in the accident, which involved a train heading from Paris to the west-central city of Limoges.
"The train arrived at the station at high speed. It split in two for an unknown reason. Part of the train continued to roll while the other was left on its side on the platform," the police source said.

What`s with all the accidents with traveling lately? I mean, just this week, there was the plane crash in San Fransisco, Alaska, the train accident in Lac-Mégantic, now this? Makes you think doesn't it... My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
