[quote:justanothergranny:MV8yMDUyNzEwXzM0NTAxMTk5XzU3N0M0ODZB] The semi was carrying vets, spouses and local sponsors. No info on how many were on the flatbeds. There were 2 semi's. The first went across the tracks and supposedly slowed or stopped. The second truck was on the tracks when the crossing arms came down, and one witness reported that it hit some of the people. Within seconds, the witness said the train hit the flatbed. Witnesses estimated the train was moving at about 55 mph. I agree - anyone local who can donate blood will be helping greatly. This is a community-supported event, where spouses are treated to many fun activities while the vets are taken to a private ranch to go deer hunting...hence the name, Hunt for Heroes. Everyone here is in total shock! My prayers go out to everyone impacted by this horrible tragedy. Kudos, CowgirlK, for the info about the need for blood donations!! :hf: [/quote]

Four dead. :-(
Dozens of wounded warriors were involved in a horrible accident Thursday afternoon in West Texas.
The accident happened at about 5 p.m. in Midland during the "Hunt for Heroes" parade. A big rig that was carrying the veterans on a flat bed trailer was hit by a train.
There are conflicting reports about the crossing arms. Some witnesses said the arms were not coming down as the truck approached the crossing.
