Train, truck collide in Bay St. Louis, 2 injured

BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - Two people have been hurt after their truck collided with an eastbound CSX train.

The accident happened shortly after 9 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of City Park Avenue and Toulme Street in Bay St. Louis.

Deputy Chief Christine Johnson told The Sun Herald that Kenneth and Deborah Kennedy, both 52, from Waveland, were apparently going over the track and possibly tried to back up to get off the tracks when the accident happened.

Fire Chief Pam San Fillippo says their injuries did not appear life-threatening. She says firefighters were able to get both out of the truck without using mechanical assistance.

Johnson says the couple was talking when they were transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Gulfport.
