Plaintiffs added to lawsuit in fatal train wreck

Posted: Updated:

MIDLAND, Texas (AP) - A lawsuit over the crash of a Union Pacific freight train into a parade float carrying military veterans is expanding.

Eight more people and the family of 1 of the four veterans killed in the crash have joined the lawsuit against Union Pacific and a Midland company that owned the truck that towed the float.

A truck owned by Smith Industries Inc. in Midland was towing the second float in a parade organized to honor wounded veterans and their wives.

Lubbock lawyer Kevin Glasheen said in a Wednesday statement that the family of Joshua Michael of San Antonio has joined the suit, along with four couples. Michael is 1 of 4 men killed in the crash. They join two other couples as plaintiffs.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
