Attorney: Driver in Texas parade crash 'in shock'

MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — The attorney for a parade float driver in a fatal train collision in West Texas says the driver is under a doctor's care and remains "very much in shock" after the incident.

Dale Andrew Hayden was identified Tuesday as the driver in last week's crash that left four veterans dead and 16 people injured.

Attorney Hal Brockett says Hayden is himself a veteran who served in Afghanistan. The 50-year-old is now a truck driver for an oilfield services company. He was driving a flatbed truck Thursday carrying two dozen veterans and their loved ones for a parade in their honor.

The truck was passing a railroad crossing when it was hit by a Union Pacific train.

Brockett says words can't express Hayden's "sorrow and remorse" for the victims.
