The Texas-based charter bus, carrying 48 people, was heading north on Main Street when it got stuck trying to cross the train tracks, according to Cecilia Dobbs Walton, a city spokeswoman.
The eastbound CSX train struck the bus around 2:13 p.m., said Vincent Creel, also a city spokesman.
Melissa Flores of Lockhart, Texas, said her mother, Mary Ramirez, was a passenger on the bus, along with other members of the Bastrop Senior Center in Bastrop, Texas, about 33 miles southeast of Austin.
According to their itinerary, Flores said the group ate breakfast Tuesday morning at Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and was scheduled to arrive at Boomtown Casino Biloxi in Biloxi around 2:30 p.m. Flores said Ramirez, 71, told her the bus stalled on the tracks, and passengers started to leave the bus after a few minutes.
Residents from Austin and Sealy, a city west of Houston, were also aboard the bus, KEYE reported.
Motorist Austin Dominey said it looked like the bus had bottomed out as it tried to cross the train tracks, CNN affiliate WKRG reported.
