Train crashes into trailer of veterans during parade

MIDLAND, Texas (AP) - An event organizer says four people have died and 17 others are injured after the trailer they were riding on crashed into a train during a West Texas parade.

"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.
