It seems that some wagons rolled away and collided with the locmotive. Another locomotive might be damaged too.

Interesting point is that there is not a single word in the news, no "Leserreporter" photo, nothing.

Not even a "live ticker" report about delays/closure?
If it happened in a freight yard, it might not interfere with traffic nor be visible from the mainline

Has there been any other information as to what 11297 impacted?

SER reports that a passing freight hauled by 11348 hit some "metal pieces" from the collision and that the loco was slightly damaged.

11297 was being leased and operated by Railcare at the time of the accident.
