LONDON (AP) – British police say the driver of a tram that derailed in London, killing seven people, has been released on bail.
The 42-year-old man, who has not been publicly named, was arrested after yesterday’s crash on suspicion of manslaughter. The tram came off the rails while rounding a tight curve in south London. Emergency workers labored for hours to free several people trapped in the wreckage. Accident investigators say the tram appears to have been “traveling at a significantly higher speed.”
