A White Hall man was killed in Sunday’s train collision in Hoxie.

Chance Gober, an engineer on one of the trains, was killed, said Jeff DeGraff, Union Pacific spokesman.

Conductor Roderick Hayes of McKinney, Texas, was also killed.

The injured crew members were Engineer Michael Zampakos of Maumelle and conductor Aaron Jeffery of Conway.

Funeral arrangements for Gober will be announced by Ralph Robinson & Son Funeral Directors.

Gober was the father of Estee Alexander Gober, who died unexpectedly in March 2012 at age 3. The White Hall community came together after her death, holding several fundraisers to help the family.

“If I sat down and wrote a ‘thank you’ card to everyone who reached out to our family during this difficult time, I would be writing a year from now,” Chance Gober said in an April 2012 White Hall Progress article about a fundraiser hosted by the Little League team of his son, Jack Gober, Estee’s brother.
