Spanish train crash According to the Spanish media, the excessive speed is seen among the main causes of the catastrophic train accident that emerged on Wednesday evening at Santiago de Compostela, in the northwest region of the country.

“Excess speed during a turn is the possible cause of the accident, ” reveals the daily El Pais. Citing sources close to the investigation, the newspaper said that at the time of the accident, trains ran at a speed between 180 and 220 km/h on a stretch where the limit was 80 kilometers per hour.

“It’s a very complicated and tight turn. Therefore, it is forbidden to run with over 80 kilometers per hour at the place where the train derailed, ” added El Pais.

The crash happened on a stretch of high-speed about four kilometres from Santiago de Compostela, a famous pilgrimage town.

A spokesman for the Spanish rail company Renfe said “that an investigation is ongoing.” “We must wait in order to discover the causes of the accident. We will find out soon also the exact speed of the train after the analysts will examine the black boxes, ” he added.
