BILOXI – Four people died and 34 were injured Tuesday when a freight train hit a charter bus that appeared to be stuck on railroad tracks at the Main Street crossing.

.

Biloxi Police Chief John Miller confirmed the first three fatalities in a press conference shortly after the 2:15 p.m. crash. A fourth person died at Merit Health in Biloxi, Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said.

.

Hargrove said two men and two women died. Their identities will be released at a later time.

.

The bus had come to the Mississippi Coast from Austin, Texas, carrying 46 people.

.

The group was on a seven-day trip organized by the Bastrop Senior Center, according to the Austin Statesman newspaper. Ameet Patel with Penn National Gaming, owner of Boomtown Casino and Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast, said they had been at Hollywood in Bay St. Louis and were headed to Boomtown for the day.

.

Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to remove two people from the wreckage, said Biloxi Fire Chief Joe Boney, incident commander. They also used ladders to remove others as sirens blared and people yelled out. They used a car near the wreck as a stepladder.

.

Biloxi spokesman Vincent Creel said the driver was alert and speaking with medical personnel immediately after the crash. Its unclear if he was sent to the hospital.

.

The train was eastbound when it hit the northbound charter bus, pushing it some 300 feet, Creel said.

.

Why the bus was on the tracks remains unclear. Miller said he wasnt sure if it had an engine problem. CSX Transportation has sent investigators. It wasnt clear if the National Transportation Safety Board had been notified.

.

Miller said its the first time Biloxi has had a tragedy of this magnitude.

.

We had a lot of people here in a hurry, he said Tuesday afternoon. Its a terrible tragedy. I know that theres a lot of families that are going to be impacted here. I just want everyone to know we are doing everything we can do to help everyone on that bus.

.

Miller said Biloxi police and firefighters had training on what to do in a train emergency just last week, and it proved vital in getting victims out of the wrecked bus.

.

I took off running

.

Two men who saw the crash said it appeared the bus got stuck minutes before a CSX train approached, blowing its horn.

.

I took off running, Craig Robinson said. He said he hoped to tell people to get off the bus, but the train hit before he reached it.

.

Mark Robinson said he saw people getting off the bus before the train hit it.
