A Churchill County official says there are now four passengers unaccounted for after contacting one of the missing Monday, following a fiery crash between a semi-truck and train that killed at least six people and injured about 20 others at a crossing in Fallon.

Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham told The Associated Press last week that the five people who were on the train's manifest of more than 200 remained unaccounted for as of Sunday night. More than two dozen people were being sought a day earlier.

The truck driver now identified as 43-year-old Lawrence Valli, a conductor and four others on the train were killed in the wreck in which a semi-trailer truck slammed into two passenger cars 70 miles east of Reno on Friday.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

The county coroner's office continued sifting through the wreckage on Sunday. Investigators say they found no additional victims.
