A high-speed magnetic train went off a test track in northwestern Germany on Friday, killing one person and injuring up to 25 others, some of them seriously, police said. The train, carrying 29 people, apparently hit an obstacle on the tracks, police spokesman Martin Ratermann said. Firefighters were using ladders to reach the injured at the accident site on an elevated track. The Transrapid magnetic train came off the elevated tracks in the town of Lathen at around 10:05 a.m. police spokesman Helge Nestler said. "The magnetic levitation train is hanging halfway off the track," he said, adding that passengers were still inside.
