Spanish official: At least 35 dead in train accident
MADRID -- Spain regional official Alberto Nunez Feijoo told a Spanish media outlet that at least 35 people are dead after a train accident in the northwestern part of the country.
The train derailed Wednesday, toppling passenger cars and leaving at least one torn open as smoke rose into the air.
Two injured passengers said they felt a strong vibration before the derailment.
The accident happened on high-speed tracks near the train station in Santiago de Compostola, which is about 60 miles south of El Ferrol.
The train, which belongs to the state-owned Renfe company, was headed to El Ferrol from Madrid.
