Rail traffic resumes with the first commuter train slowly passing by the crash site in Eschede June 9, where a German InterCity Express high-speed train, travelling at 200 kmh (125 mph), derailed and slammed into a road bridge June 3, leaving some 100 people dead and nearly 50 seriously injured. German railway Deutsche Bahn AG said the cause may have partly been due to a damaged wheel and withdrew sixty of the first generation ICE trains from service for special safety checks including an ultrasound test of the wheels.
