Taipei - Taiwan prosecutors on Friday charged a truck driver with negligent homicide over his role in the island’s worst rail disaster in decades that left 49 dead and more than 200 injured. The April 2 crash was caused by a railway maintenance truck that slid down an embankment moments before a packed train came down the line in the eastern coastal city of Hualien. The vehicle had been stuck in bushes on a nearby road before it rolled down the slope, and prosecutors said driver Li Yi-hsiang and his Vietnamese assistant tried to free it with a rope tied to a backhoe.
