VIDEO: The deadly Santiago train crash, captured on trackside camera

ONE year on, the footage of the train crash remains just as shocking.

This is the moment an Alvia train derailed near Santiago de Compostela in north-western Spain, graphically captured by a trackside security camera.

In the video, the train enters a sharp curve at high speed before coming off the track and smashing into a concrete wall.

In total, 79 people died, while more than 140 were injured.

This was the first fatal accident on a high-speed line in Spain and the most serious rail accident in the last 40 years.
