Train Derail

Search planned for missing person in train crash wreckage

Charges have been filed against the man accused of causing yesterday's deadly train derailment in southern California. The district attorney in Los Angeles County says Juan Alvarez has been charged with ten counts of murder. He says the charges include special circumstances that could bring the death penalty. Alvarez is accused of parking his SUV on the tracks, where it was hit by a commuter train in Glendale. Police say he intended to kill himself -- but changed his mind and got out of the vehicle. Alvarez is being held without bail at a hospital's jail ward. Police say as part of his suicide attempts before the wreck, he apparently cut his wrists and stabbed himself. Officials say eleven people died in the train crash, though only ten deaths were confirmed when the charges were filed last night.
