Spain Train Crash Driver to Face Judge Today

The BBC has reported how the driver of a train that crashed near Santiago de Compostela on Wednesday killing 78 people is due to appear before a judge.

Francisco Jose Garzon Amo has been detained on suspicion of "Reckless homicide" and the judge will then decide whether to press formal charges.

The suspicion is that Garzon was travelling at more than twice the speed limit at the time of the crash, and should have commenced braking manoeuvres over 4km up the track.

Garzon, who left Hospital after being treated for head injuries sustained in the crash, has so far refused to give any statement.

Today's court hearing will be closed but the judge will decide whether to remand the driver as an official suspect, release him on bail, or free him without charge.

If the judge finds enough evidence for a criminal trial, Mr Garzon will be charged and a date set.
