Spanish train driver ‘will not face judge on Saturday’

The driver of the train that crashed and killed 78 people in Spain will not appear before a judge today, according to Spanish judicial authorities.

The plan is to wait for Francisco Jose Garzon to be able to appear in court, rather than have a judge come to his hospital bedside, said a justice department statement.

Garzon is under police guard in a hospital, on suspicion of "recklessness" while driving the train.
