MCCOMB, MS (WLOX) - McComb Central Communications dispatched units to the Nehi Circle railroad crossing regarding a train hitting a vehicle Monday afternoon at 3:46 pm. McComb Police, McComb Fire and Rescue, Pike County Sheriffs Department and AAA Ambulance service responded. 

When McComb PD arrived, the initial investigation determined that an Amtrak passenger train struck a 2002 Nissan Altima that appeared to be traveling west bound on Nehi Circle. It was also determined that three people were dead on the scene. 

A fourth person, a 17-year-old black male, was found conscious and somewhat alert and was transported by AAA Ambulance to Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center Emergency Room. 

The three deceased were a 17-year-old black female, a 12-year-old black male and a 2-year-old black female. All four occupants were ejected from the vehicle during impact. 

The McComb Police Department is not releasing any information regarding the victims of this tragic accident due to their ages. 

The City of New Orleans Amtrak passenger train personnel reported no injuries to the crew or to any passenger aboard the train. The Amtrak passenger train received minimal damage and was allowed to continue north on its route after documentation was made for report purposes. 

Personnel from the CN Railroad and Amtrak made the determination for the City of New Orleans passenger train to continue north bound based on their rules and regulations.

This collision is still under investigation.

    Full-time Waveland city workers, primarily police officers, who take-home vehicles outside of the city limits could see a change to the city's policy soon. City leaders said the current policy is antiquated and needs to be rewritten into something that would benefit both the officers and the taxpayers.
