Climax-- Investigators are still sorting through the rubble of a train wreck that killed three Bainbridge College students and an instructor.
They still don't know why the semi truck pulled into the path of a train. The group was taking part in a commercial Driver's license course yesterday afternoon when that crash occured. And there are still questions about what happened.
We do now know the names of those killed. The instructor, 38-year old Laura Jenson of Bainbridge. And three students, 34-year old Jamie Holms and 40-year old Deborah Martin of Cairo, and 46-year old Michael Raley of Colquitt.
The semi they were in stopped at a railroad crossing, but then pulled into the path of the train and burst into flames.
"Right now, from yersterday, there's really nothing new. We're just trying to gather everything up and right now it's pretty much the same as it was yesterday," says DonalsonvilleTrooper Philip Ponder.
A team from CSX Railroad is in Climax working on reconstructing the wreck to understand better what happened.
Funeral plans for one of the victims have been set. The funeral for Jamie Holms of Cairo will be held at 4:00PM Thursday at Clark Funeral home chapel in Cairo. Visitation will be held Wednesday night from 7 to 9.
Funeral Arrangements are still being made for Deborah Martin, Michael Raley and Laura Jenson.
