Horrible Accident - Train Hits Parade Float Carrying Wounded Warriors
Midland, Texas. Supposedly the flat bed trailer stuck on the tracks at a crossing. So Far 17 injured and four killed. This just came over Fox News.


DEVELOPING -- At least four people were killed and dozens injured Thursday after a train crashed into a trailer carrying veterans during a parade in Texas.

At least four deaths have been reported and at least 17 people were injured, and 10 of them are listed in critical condition.

A flatbed 18-wheeler truck was reportedly carrying 24 veterans and their families for the "Hunt for Heroes" parade in Midland when it was hit by a train.

"Show of Support" president and founder Terry Johnson tells the Midland Reporter-Telegram that a Union Pacific train slammed into a trailer that was on its way to the wounded veterans event about 5 p.m. Thursday.

He says there are "multiple, multiple" injuries and organizers still are trying to account for everyone.

It was not immediately clear what caused the accident, but one witness says the truck may have gotten stuck on the train tracks.

The parade was supposed to end at a "Hunt for Heroes" banquet before wounded service members were treated to a deer-hunting trip this weekend. All of those events reportedly have been canceled

Crazy ass story. Just when you've seen and heard everything something like this comes out of the blue.
And what's worse is some of the pathetic "comments" by readers on the news sites.

Society is screwed.
