ANKARA, Turkey — Three Turkish Railway workers have been detained and face criminal charges as a result of last week’s fatal crash involving a high speed, AFP reports.

Nine people were killed and close to 90 injured when the train hit a locomotive, then demolished a pedestrian bridge, at a station in Ankara. [See “At least nine dead in Turkish high speed train crash,” Trains News Wire, Dec. 13, 2018.]

The workers — a signalman, switchman, and dispatcher — face charges of reckless manslaughter and causing injury, the Anadolu state news agency reported.
