Résumé :

Exactly four years ago, on November 14, 2015, a test TGV derailed in the small Alsatian town of Eckwersheim (Bas-Rhin). The drama occurs in a bend and at more than 260 km / h. The disaster left 11 dead and 42 injured, including 21 of them seriously affected.

The trial should take place in 2020. 5 natural or legal persons, including SNCF through the voice of its now ex-president, Guillaume Pepy, are indicted in this case.

The first fatal accident involving a TGV was obscured by the attacks of November 13, which had just mourned France a few hours earlier. Source code tells you about this forgotten railroad drama.
