Underground accident in Valencia

The past 3rd of July the worse underground accident in spain cost the death of 43 people in Valencia.
It was 1:00 pm when everything happened.One carriage of the line 1 was derailed 10 metres before the Jesus station.It cost 43 deaths and a lot of casualties.the cause of the accident was that the underground circulated at 80 km/h in a very dangerous curved.In this curved the wagon circulated at th double speed allowed.
Also the line 1 is the oldest underground line in valencia.The wagons are shattered.
The valencian govern has to invest money in the public transport and no spent money in other things like the recent visit of Ratzinger.
