Five people were killed when the truck they were riding in - earlier pursued by police - slammed into a stopped freight train, authorities said.
Seminole County sheriff's Lt. Dennis Lemma said the vehicle was going 74 mph when it hit the 62-car freight train Tuesday night. He said Sanford police tried to pull the truck over early Tuesday morning for a routine stop, but the driver fled. The same officer saw the truck that night, and radioed sheriff's deputies for help after it refused to yield. Story Here > http://www.theledger.com/article/20080612/NEWS/806120465
