Hanau, Germany 1993
On 22 March 1993, an Inter City Express (ICE) became derailed after the points were changed as the last carriage was passing over them. The incident occurred at a junction close to Hanua with the result that the main part of the train took its allotted route and the rear power car took the other. Fortunately, the train which is capable of 280km/h was moving slowly at the time.
