4 Dead After Train Hits Bus in Biloxi, Mississippi
Four people were killed when a freight train struck a bus carrying senior citizens on a casino outing Tuesday in Biloxi, Mississippi, officials said.
Previous reports from Biloxi officials fluctuated between three and four deaths.
The Texas-based charter bus, carrying 48 people, was heading north on Main Street when it got stuck trying to cross train tracks in Biloxi, according to Cecilia Dobbs Walton, a city spokeswoman. The eastbound CSX train struck the bus around 2:13 p.m., said Vincent Creel, another city spokesman.
Seven passengers were critically injured, city officials said. Authorities said 41 people were taken to hospitals, including one person who was airlifted from the scene.
The train’s engineer and conductor were not injured, CSX spokesman Gary Sease said.
