Police detain Spain train crash driver as suspect

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain (AP) - Police say they have detained the driver of a train that crashed in northwestern Spain and killed 78 people.

Galicia region National Police Chief Jaime Iglesias says driver Francisco Jose Garzon Amo was officially detained in the hospital where is recovering.

Iglesias said Friday that Garzon Amo would be questioned "as a suspect for a crime linked to the cause of the accident."

He says the driver is being guarded by police and cannot yet testify because of his medical condition. Iglesias said he did not have details of the medical condition but that it could delay the driver's statement.
