Train Derails in Spain

Last Wednesday, a train carrying 218 passengers derailed as it came into a curve, sliding off the tracks and crashing into a concrete wall. The train was reported to have been traveling in excess of its 50 mph speed limit, with the Spanish rail agency saying the brakes should have been applied much sooner before the train hit the curve. The death toll has climbed to 79. (Photo: El correo Gallego/Antonio Hernandez/AP Photo)
