Millas drama: a month on, still uncertainties

France 3/Scoop, Jan 14

Last December 14, shortly after 4pm, a school bus and a TER train collided on a level crossing in Millas, Pyrénées-Orientales. Six children lost their lives. One month on, the crossing is still closed.

Maître Jean Codognès, the bus driver’s lawyer, said that she was "convinced that there was a major malfunction" of the gates, and said that she did not trust the preliminary investigation conducted by SNCF.

Investigations are still in progress, and in the meantime, the crossing is still closed, and traces of the accident are still visible.

The weeks go by but one question remains: were the crossing barriers raised or lowered?
