PARIS — The French train crash that killed at least six people last week was probably caused by a technical fault involving the track, Bloomberg News reported.

The piece of metal linking two train lines “broke away” when the accident took place, SNCF Chairman Guillaume Pepy said at a press conference. The rail company plans to review all similar metal links on its network, according to the report.

The crash marked the country’s worst rail accident since 2002. For the full story, click here.
