Train driver's(?) radio chat with station: "If there's dead, they're all on my conscience"

Someone had a bad day.

Re: At Least 77 Killed in Worst Spanish Rail Disaster in 40 Years

As usual, there are many conflicting reports; one of the drivers stated via radio right after the crash, while he was still trapped in the train, that they were speeding at least at 190kmh (118Mph) where the top speed allowed was 80Kmh (49Mph).
The first four carriage overturned, the fifht litterally flew away.

Thanks for your post and for your contributions, KH.

typical moral hazard case: we are insured so let's force the drivers to pass max speed limit
