Thursday marked four weeks since the deadly wreck which killed 4 decorated military veterans and injured 17 other people.
A Union Pacific freight train plowed into a Smith Industries big rig being used as a Show of Support parade float around 4:35 p.m. on November 15th.
The flatbed trailer was carrying 12 veterans, their 12 wives and 2 escorts to a banquet at the Midland County Horseshoe Arena when the tragedy struck.
The Midland Police Department's investigation into the crash is now in the hands of the Midland County District Attorney's office, with the D.A. ultimately deciding if any criminal charges will come from the crash or not.
Meanwhile, Bob Pottroff and Kevin Glasheen -- the attorneys for the victims and their families -- have filed a civil suit against the Union Pacific railroad and Smith Industries (the owner of the big rig).
B. Calvin Hendrick VII with the Shafer Law Firm in Odessa has been retained to represent Smith Industries.
Starting Monday, the attorneys will all be inspecting the crossing where the wreck happened as part of their discovery process. South Garfield Street, Industrial and Front Street are set to be closed starting at 9 a.m. on Monday December 17th.
Meanwhile, the National Transportation Safety Board continues its federal investigation into this crash.
