Fatal train collision to go to Texas grand jury
Thursday - 1/3/2013, 11:05am EST
MIDLAND, Texas (AP) - A Texas prosecutor says a grand jury will consider the case involving a train collision that killed four veterans who were riding on a parade float.
Midland County assistant district attorney Eric Kalenak said Thursday that a newly impaneled grand jury is scheduled to hear the case Wednesday.
He declined to say whether the office is recommending an indictment in the Nov. 15 accident.
The veterans died when a flatbed truck they were riding on was struck by a Union Pacific train traveling 62 mph. The truck was the second float in a parade organized to honor wounded veterans and their wives.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
Union Pacific said last month it was adjusting the timing of the crossing signal where the collision occurred.
