How horrible. Based on witness reports that the train was on the float before everyone could react, it appears that either the engineer was speeding and/or that the speed limit for the track is too high for an urban area. Most people don't realize that the railroads set their own speed limits for their own track--and that state and local governments cannot interfere with these speed limits unless dire circumstances warrant.

A parade gets hit by a Freight Train? How the Heck does that even happen? Was this a parade for the deaf and blind? A FREIGHT TRAIN, whistle blaring, in the flat land where you can see it coming a mile away. Ya Right.

It sounds to me like the parade was badly managed. Someone should have been monitoring the railroad crossing to make sure each parade float got over it safely.
