The train derailed because of burglary

Last tuesday an ICE-train collided with an empty freighttrain.

Imagine the freighttrain would have been loaded with inflammable, explosive or other chemical materials!
We have a huge fire two weeks ago and people are all over the place to get a grip on their emotions about the unknown dangers of the chemicals that were burned or were washed away with the water the firefighters used.

Research had show the train lost grip on the rails because copperthieves took the copper from the system over a length of 150 metres.

Copper can be sold on the black market for a lot of money, so there's no doubt these thieves did it all for the money.

Trading of metals is strictly regulated in The Netherlands and it's controled regularly. Every cm should be accountable in the books.

So it's thought that eastern europeans stole the copper.
