The testimony of towboat crewmen Wednesday reinforced growing evidence that barges lashed to their vessel rammed a bridge a few minutes before an Amtrak train plunged from the disabled span into a bayou, killing 47 people. Willie C. Odom, the man who was at the helm of the towboat Mauvilla, told a National Transportation Safety Board hearing that he became lost in the fog as he headed up the Mobile River in the early morning darkness of Sept. 22 with six heavily laden barges.
