Veterans Parade in Midland Turns Deadly with Train Crash

Four are dead and many more are injured during a Veterans parade in Midland on Thursday evening. A flat bed trailer carrying a number of veterans and their wives was hit by a train around 5 p.m. during the Show of Support events for this weekend.

The parade was taking 24 veterans and their wives from the Doubletree Hotel in Midland to the Horseshoe in south Midland. The parade was supposed to coincide with the Hunt for Heroes Banquet, but all related events this weekend have been cancelled.

The events this weekend were all-expense paid trips for the wounded servicemen to hunt for white tail deer while there spouses were treated to various events around Midland for the weekend.
