The train driver in last week’s crash in Spain was talking on the phone when it derailed, investigators say.
The train was travelling at 153km/h (95mph) at the time, investigators at the Court of Justice of Galicia said.
Francisco Jose Garzon Amo was speaking to members of staff at the state-owned railway company, Renfe, they added.
Crash investigators had opened the train’s “black-box” data recorder to find the cause of the crash, which left 79 people dead.
