It is understood the accident took place near a station. In 2013, 79 people were killed in Spain’s worst rail disaster in decades when a high-speed train went off the tracks and slammed into a wall near Santiago de Compostela, in Galicia.

The train was travelling from the Galician town of Vigo to Porto in Portugal when the accident happened near the town of O Porrino.

The train’s front carriage ended up on its side up against a grass verge.

Helicopters and ambulances rushed to the scene to attend to the victims.

Adif, the company that manages railways in Spain and is in charge of the tracks, said the accident happened around 9.30am local time just before it was due to arrive at the station of O Porrino.

Ramon Gonzalez, a witness interviewed by Spanish television, said there was a ‘very strong bang.’

‘It was full of black smoke,’ he said over the phone.

‘It’s a straight line… so this isn’t normal.

‘There are still some injured here but very not serious, the seriously injured were quickly evacuated.’

In a statement, Spain’s railway company Renfe said the train and the driver were both Portuguese, adding that railway traffic had been suspended in the area.

In 2013, 79 people were killed in Spain’s worst rail disaster in decades when a high-speed train went off the tracks and slammed into a wall near Santiago de Compostela, again in Galicia.

The train was approaching a curve at more than twice the speed limit on that piece of the track in Galicia.

A pre-trial investigation of the July 24, 2013 crash carried out by a court in Galicia concluded the accident was caused by a lapse in attention by the driver, who was on the telephone at the time of the crash with another rail employee.

  2. The rail passengers and their families have my sympathy.

    But it has been fifteen years since the 911 attack and there are still Muslims inside the USofA.

    How is this possible?
