Mt. Pleasant Police are waiting for the Medical Examiner to confirm the identity of the victims in Sunday’s train accident. It may be another day before the names are released. The incident occurred Sunday morning when two pedestrians were hit at the Lincoln Street crossing. One person died at the scene and the other was taken to HCHC and then University Hospitals in Iowa City. No updated information on that individual’s condition has been released.
