BILOXI, Miss. – City council members in Biloxi have approved a plan to close six railroad crossings in town less than a month after a deadly collision between a CSX Transportation freight train and a tour bus.

City leaders say they were already planning to close a half-dozen of its 29 railroad crossings before the wreck occurred, but the incident focused more attention on the issue, the Sun Herald reports.

Earlier this month, a CSX freight train struck a tour bus on a grade crossing in Biloxi. The incident killed four bus passengers and injured dozens more. The National Transportation Safety will have a preliminary report on the crash within a few weeks.
