Veterans Parade Train Crash

FILE – In this Nov. 15, 2012 file photo, a flatbed truck carries wounded veterans and their families during a parade before it was struck by a train in Midland, Texas. A 50-year-old Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan was driving the parade float that investigators say edged across a railroad crossing in Texas despite warning signals of a fast approaching train, the man’s attorney said Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012. Four veterans and sixteen people were injured in the resulting collision. (AP Photo/Reporter-Telegram, James Durbin, File)
