[quote:itsamadmadworld:MV8yMDUyNzEwXzM0NTAyMTk3X0EyNzFDQTgz] First of all, the train company should have been notified by the organizers/coordinators of the parade, but evidently was not. Next, was there NO other route for the parade to take that did not involve crossing a train track? And how insane for a driver to pull forward onto a track, when they had to know the vehicles ahead were stopped. If they could see that traffic was not moving, then the driver should have held back - it is outrageous that someone would cross a track without knowing full well they could immediately clear it. Lastly, whomever was in charge of coordinating the parade, also failed to insure that it moved along with stalling or back-ups. [/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.
