HOUSTON -- West Texas grand jurors on Wednesday are expected to 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 12-member grand jury, according to the Associated Press. Kalenak would not tell the AP whether he would recommend an indictment in connection with the Nov. 15 crash, in which a flatbed truck the veterans were riding on in a parade was hit by a Union Pacific train.
Kalenak told the Midland Reporter-Telegram this week that he planned to present the grand jury with details from a "thorough" investigation of the train wreck, although he declined to release the Midland police report.
He did not say why Midland police chose not to file charges against Dale Hayden, the Smith Industries Inc. driver of the parade float that was struck during the annual "Hunt for Heroes" parade.
