The driver of a high-speed Spanish train, which crashed killing 79 people last week, was talking on the phone when the accident occurred, the investigators said after opening the “black box” recorders.
The Investigators say the train was going as fast as 119 mph (192 kph), which is almost twice the speed limit, before the crash and the conductor activated the breaks just “seconds before the crash,” AP reports.
The court statement also revealed that the driver was talking on the phone to an official at the national rail company, Renfe, when the crash happened.
