Spain Train Driver Being Held

Jose Garzon Amo, the Spanish train driver whose obsession with speed ended with the deaths of at least 78 people on Wednesday, is expected to be interviewed by a judge today after checking out of the hospital. Amo was allegedly driving twice the speed limit around a tight curve. The eight-carriage train was derailed and smashed into a wall. Although he has refused to answer questions, the Interior Minister said Amo had been taken to a police station after treatment for minor injuries and was held on suspicion of negligent homicide.
