Officials name 2 dead in Mississippi crash of train into van
RED BANKS, Miss. (AP) - Officials are identifying two people who died when a train smashed into a van Tuesday in northern Mississippi.
Marshall County Coroner James Richard Anderson tells local news outlets that the dead are Charity Mull and Brandon Deshawn Mosley, both 27-year-old residents of Memphis, Tennessee.
They were two of five people in a minivan hit by a BNSF Railway freight train in Red Banks, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) southeast of Memphis. Three others were injured and hospitalized.
Memphis-based American Veterans Moving Co. says the five were workers who had packed a house.
It's unclear if the van was moving or stationary on the crossing, which has lights and bells but no gates.
BNSF is providing video from a locomotive to local and Federal Railroad Administration officials, who are investigating.
