On Monday, July 29, 2013, Their Royal Highnesses Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Asturias accompanied by Infanta Elena of Spain arrived at the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain to attend a memorial Mass for the 79 victims of last Wednesday’s horrific train crash in Santiago de Compostela.

According to CNN the driver of the train, Mr. Francisco Jose Garzon, was “…charged [on] Sunday with 79 counts of homicide by professional recklessness and an undetermined number of counts of causing injury by professional recklessness.”  

The Los Angeles Times reports that the train was “…traveling twice the maximum speed allowed along the section of the track where the train derailed.”
