The National Transportation Safety Board is launching a go-team to an accident in Midland, Texas, in which a Union Pacific freight train struck a flatbed semi-trailer being used as a parade float at a grade crossing at about 4:40 pm CST today. Numerous fatalities and serious injuries have been reported.

Texas-based NTSB investigator Robert Accetta is leading the team as the Investigator-in-Charge. Two investigators are en route to the scene; the remainder of the team will travel to Texas tomorrow.

NTSB Board Member Mark Rosekind is accompanying the team and will serve as the principal spokesman during the on-scene phase of the investigation.
