The accident killing four people and injuring 17 others yesterday during a parade in Midland, Texas. The float was on its way to an honorary banquet. Michael Briggs witnessed the crash.
(Briggs) “I saw the uh, truck crossing the tracks. About half way across the, uh, gate started coming down. The truck tried blowing its horn, trying to get the other people in front of him out of the way. The gates actually hit the first people on the trailer.”
