The driver of a train that hurtled off the rails in Spain was charged Sunday with 79 counts of reckless homicide and released on bail after being questioned by a judge. 

Spanish train driver Francisco Jose Garzon Amo leaves the police station to be transferred to the courthouse of Santiago de Compostela on July 28, 2013.
