An eye witness to the crash told the Biloxi Sun Herald that the bus had been sitting at a railroad crossing in downtown Biloxi for five to 10 minutes when the train hit it. Some passengers had been getting off of the bus when the collision happened causing some to become trapped under the bus, the eye witness said.
