LIVONIA, LA (WAFB) - Another tragic accident for a Livonia family comes two years after the first. A teenager who survived being shot in the head in a hunting accident in December 2012 was killed in a train accident.

Brandt Torres' relatives are now planning his funeral after he was struck and killed over the weekend.

Authorities believe Torres and two friends were placing coins on the tracks as a train approached.
