Train stops with a body pinned to it

  • Passengers in a French train realized that a bicyclist's dead body was pinned to the driver's carriage once the train pulled into a station. 

    Reports suggest that the train's high speed may have hit the 48-year-old, carrying him miles across to Mulhouse station. Police weren't able to tell if the death was an accident or suicide. 

    "The body was found, stuck to the front right of the train, out of the driver's vision," a national rail company spokesman said. "The kinetic energy of a train is so great that a shunt could go unnoticed. If there isn't any debris left on the sides upon impact, you wouldn't be aware of it."
