Float driver says train seemed still before crash
May 22, 2013 17:54 GMT
MIDLAND, Texas (AP) -- The driver of a parade float struck by a train in a Texas crash that killed four military veterans told federal investigators that the oncoming train appeared to be stationary.
Documents released Wednesday by the National Transportation Safety Board show that Dale Hayden told investigators he was focused on his left-side rearview mirror, looking for a bump in the intersection, as he crossed the tracks on Nov. 15.
As he looked through his right window, the oncoming train appeared to have stopped. He also said another parade truck had a loud train-like horn that made it difficult to tell if the train was blowing its horn.
NTSB said in a preliminary report days after the accident that the train was travelling about 62 mph at the time of the crash.
