Video Shows Deadly Train Derailment in Spain

spain1

MADRID – Spanish investigators may get some clues as to what caused yesterday’s derailment from a security camera that captured the moment when the passenger train veers off the track and crashes into a wall at high speed. The death toll from the crash has risen to 78, while more than 140 other people were injured.

The footage posted Thursday on YouTube shows the train rounding a bend, making a turn to the left underneath a road overpass.

The train’s first carriage behind the locomotive appears to come off the tracks first, slamming the tail of the locomotive into a concrete wall.

All the carriages can be seen starting to come off the tracks as the locomotive hurtles toward the camera position.

The security camera footage appears to stop at the moment that the engine crashes into it.
