Heirs of a Texas couple killed when a train slammed into a tour bus in Mississippi are going to court.
Attorney Mikal Watts has sued the railroad, the bus company and its unidentified driver in state court in Dallas for Peggy Hoffman’s son.
Watts said Thursday that attorney Broadus Spivey is suing separately for heirs of Hoffman’s husband, Ken Hoffman, but they’re working together.
The Hoffmans were among four people killed and dozens injured after their tour bus got stuck on a humped train crossing in Biloxi and was hit by a CSX freight train.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday says CSX Transportation allowed “ultra hazardous” conditions at the crossing, and the Echo Transportation driver failed to follow traffic signs.
Neither CSX nor Echo responded immediately to requests for comment.
