Climax-- The four were taking part in a truck driving course offered by Bainbridge College. Bainbridge College has confirmed three students and a faculty member were killed in that crash around four this afternoon.

Witnesses say the driver of the Tractor-trailer pulled out in front of the train at a railroad crossing just east of Climax. The truck was dragged several hundred yards before it came to rest.

The cab caught fire, and the people inside apparently burned to death. Law enforcement officers are still working to notify the family members.

Bainbridge College issued a statement saying their "Hearts are grieving and they extend condolences to family members."

We will have more information on this horrific wreck tonight at 11:00.
