Two trains have collided head-on in western Switzerland, killing one train’s driver and injuring at least 26 passengers. Officials say 46 passengers were on board the trains when the accident happened late Monday in Granges-pres-Marnand. The cause of the collision was not immediately clear. Last week, 79 people were killed in a train crash in the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela.
Police are holding the engineer of the Spanish train that derailed at high speed this week on suspicion of reckless homicide. Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz said Saturday there are “reasonable grounds” to believe that Francisco José Garzón Amo is responsible for the crash that killed 78 people.
