Francisco Jose Garzon Amo has allegedly admitted that he was speaking to the train’s ticket inspector moments before the accident occurred.
He also said that he had hung up by the time the train had derailed. In one of Spain’s worst train crash’s in history, a court has heard that the driver was talking to the ticket inspector about which platform they would be arriving on at the next station.
Garzon continued by saying that he had hung up seconds before the train hurtled off the track.
Records show that the driver was on the phone at the time of the accident but it has not yet been revealed whether or not the inspector survived the crash.
