Seabee Dies In Car/Train Collision

A Seabee stationed on the coast was killed in a train accident Tuesday morning. 24 year old Marcus Mills from Oklahoma was hit by a train at the Broad Avenue Crossing. That crossing is just a few blocks from the Seabee base.

The accident happened around 6:00 a.m. Coroner Gary Hargrove says Seabee died soon after arriving at the Memorial Hospital.

Hargrove is in the process of notifying the Mills' family. Officials on the base say the victim recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq.

This is the second time in a year that a Seabee war veteran was accidentally killed. In July, a Seabee drowned in a Biloxi motel swimming pool.
