SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain (AP) — The driver of a Spanish train that derailed at high speed killing 79 people has been provisionally charged with multiple cases of negligent homicide.

A court statement issued late Sunday said investigative magistrate Luis Alaez released Francisco Jose Garzon Amo without bail.

The statement says Garzon must appear before court once a week and is forbidden to leave Spain without permission.

Garzon was driving the train carrying 218 passenger in eight cars that hurtled far over the 80-kph (50-mph) speed limit into a high-risk curve on Wednesday evening, tumbling off the tracks and slamming into a concrete wall.
