Train collides with bus at railroad crossing in Mississippi

At least 3 people were killed when a CSX freight train hit a charter bus in Biloxi Mississippi

He said the victims were "eerily quiet". Two people had to be cut out of the bus. It was just a lot of blood. "I mean, it's just horrific", Mc Donald said in a phone interview.

Creel says as many as 50 people were on the bus.

A video posted to Facebook by Victor Williams, a reporter with ABC affiliate WLOX, shows rescue officials working at the scene to remove those on the bus through emergency windows.

Sumwalt said they will have experts on hand to look at rail factors, highway factors, motor coach operations, survival factors and recorders.

"Had this been a group of maybe junior high kids, they probably would have all got off the bus", Kemp said.

Russia, Iraq say too soon to talk of extending oil output curbs
For its part, production from Russian Federation is forecast to remain stable over the next five years. Demand concerns and expectations for increased U.S. oil supplies also dented oil prices.

Passengers on a Texas tour bus that got stuck on a set of MS railroad tracks said they watched in helpless horror as a freight train hurtled toward them.

Each year in the USA, there are about 2,200 grade crossing accidents with a number of fatalities, according to Sumwalt. Authorities said that seven of those hurt were critically injured. The president of Bastrop Senior Center says most of the passengers, who were on a trip to a Biloxi casino, were center members.

Sumwalt said determining the length of time that the bus sat on the tracks will be critical to the investigation.

"I took off running", Craig Robinson told the Sun Herald, describing the moment he saw the train headed toward the immobilized bus. He says that "sounds like a big number" but investigators need to compare it to other crossings. Earlier Boney had said that four people died, three of them at the scene and a fourth after being taken from the scene. The National Transportation Safety Board says the freight train was traveling at about 19 miles per hour at time of the collision. The bus company did send a statement to WBTV that it was "mobilizing right now to investigate".

Charter buses carrying retirees visiting Biloxi's eight gambling casinos are common sights in the city, but it's unclear whether the Bastrop-originating bus was on such an outing. The names of the dead have not been released, but Gilich said relatives of the deceased can call the Biloxi police Department with questions.
