Spain Train Derailment
In this photo taken on July 24 2013, wounded people and dead bodies are seen at the site of a train accident in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Spanish police on Friday July 26 2013 detained the driver of a train that crashed in northwestern Spain, lowered the death toll from 80 to 78 and took possession of the "black box" of the train expected to shed light on why it was going faster than the speed limit on the curve where it derailed. And in an interview with The Associated Press, an American passenger injured on the train said he saw on a TV monitor screen inside his car that the train was traveling 194 kph (121 mph) seconds before the crash — far above the 80 kph (50 mph) speed limit on the curve where it derailed.
