Spain train crash: Driver faces investigation

Spain train crash

Spain:26.07.2013:O.B.Bureau:One of the drivers of a train which derailed in north-western Spain killing at least 80 passengers has been put under formal investigation, court officials have said.

Speed will be a factor in the inquiry, as a security camera captured the train crashing as it hurtled round a bend.

Dozens of people were hurt, 32 seriously, in the incident near Santiago de Compostela.

Spain will hold three days of mourning over the crash, one of its worst.

King Juan Carlos visited survivors and the families of victims at Santiago’s University Hospital.

“All Spaniards are united at this moment,” he said.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy was at the scene of the crash earlier in the day.

The Madrid to Ferrol train’s data recording “black box” is now with the judge in charge of the investigation.
