BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Traffic is moving again after a bus became stuck on the railroad tracks on Main St. Saturday afternoon. 

According to officials, a Kincaid charter bus was headed north when it was not able to make it over the tracks. Twenty-eight people were on the bus, which was headed to the IP Casino.

Officers in the area working the parade noticed the bus had been stopped for a long period of time, and were able to assist.

A westbound train stopped a block away at Nixon St. to avoid a collision.
