At least four people are dead and several others injured after a train crashed into a trailer carrying veterans during a parade in West Texas.
Here’s more from the Midland Reporter-Telegram:
“There are four fatalities and 16 people have been transported to Midland Memorial Hospital, said Midland Chief of Police Price Robinson.
“A float carrying veterans and their wives in the ninth annual Show of Support parade was struck by a eastbound train at the corner of Garfield Road and Industrial Avenue just before 5 p.m., Robinson said.”
The parade was supposed to end with wounded service members being treated to an all-expenses paid deer-hunting trip. Those events have been canceled.
We’ll have more details as they unfold.
