MADRID (AP) - A Spanish judge investigating a train crash that killed 79 people wants to question whoever is responsible for rail security on the stretch where the accident occurred, making the driver no longer the only suspect in the case.

Attention has focused on driver Francisco Jose Garzon Amo's responsibility after he admitted he was going too fast. He has been provisionally charged with multiple accounts of negligent homicide.

Judge Luis Alaez asked the Adif rail infrastructure company Tuesday to identify the person, or people, responsible for security so that they can be questioned.

Findings show the train was going at 195 kph (121 mph) more than twice the accident area's speed limit when it crashed July 24 on a tight curve outside the northwestern city of Santiago de Compostela.
