    they talked about texting in the cab while the train was rolling along and the crashes that happened .

      in the train crash in Northern Spain that killed so many recently, the train driver was on his cell phone with controllers from the railroad about the trip - they were giving him complex instructions, or some such, and he did not slow down for the curve.
