ACCIDENT – A person was hit by a TER, this Monday afternoon

The victim died. Strong disruptions are underway on the Nantes-Angers line, whose traffic, completely interrupted, should not resume before 5 p.m.
According to the SNCF, two trains are notably blocked in the middle of the track: the TER involved in the accident, which was carrying 70 passengers (between Nantes and Rennes via Sablé), has just left for Angers. A TGV which linked Paris to Le Croisic must also be routed to the same destination.
