Spanish train driver facing charges
SPAIN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The driver of a Spanish train that derailed killing 79 people is now facing multiple charges of negligent homicide.
Police say the driver has been released from jail without bail.
He must appear in court once a week as his case plays out and he's not allowed to leave Spain without permission.
Investigators believe the train's driver was going far above the speed limit when he tried to take a curve and the train went off the tracks, slamming into a concrete wall.
Two Americans were among the victims.
