Has the accident report been published in connection with a collision between two trains at a location named Hermalle-Sous-Huy in Belgium .Anyone aware of the cause of the accident if the Accident Report has been published ?

The final report hasn't been published, but the intermediate report says that it was probably a SPAD. It has been inquired if the signal could have shown a different aspect from red (that's what the driver said IIRC) due to the repairment works that were going on during the crash but nothing has been found.

(On a side note, if I may, I believe this is my first post, hello everyone!)
