MIDLAND (AP) - Grand jurors will consider the case of a train collision that killed four veterans riding on a parade float last fall.

Midland County prosecutor Eric Kalenak will present the case Wednesday to a newly impaneled, 12-person grand jury. He won’t say whether the office is recommending an indictment in the Nov. 15 accident.

The veterans died when the flatbed truck on which they were riding was hit by a Union Pacific train traveling at 62 mph. The truck was the second float in a parade organized to honor wounded veterans and their wives.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating. Investigators haven’t yet interviewed the truck driver.

Omaha, Neb.-based Union Pacific Corp. said in December that it was adjusting the timing of the crossing signal where the collision occurred.
