According to court documents, two couples on a parade float struck by a train are suing.

The defendants are Union Pacific Railroad and the man who drove the float during the parade for injured veterans in Midland, TX.

On Nov. 15, four people died and 16 others were hurt in the collision.

Holly Springs couple Officer Shane Ladner and his wife Meg were injured.

Doctors had to amputate Meg Ladner's left leg. Pins were placed in her right leg. Meg Ladner also suffered a crushed pelvis during the accident.

Shane Ladner, who is an Army veteran, suffered a back injury but has managed to mask his pain and has remained by his wife's bedside.

There will be two pancake breakfast fundraisers held the first and second Saturdays of December.

The events will be held at the Longhorn Steakhouse at 2700 Town Center Dr. in Kennesaw from 7:30 to 10:30 am.
