Three dead after train strikes minivan in Indiana

Three are dead and three in critical condition following a collision between a train and a minivan outside Gary, Ind.

The police department of neighboring East Chicago responded to the accident just before 1 a.m. on Saturday morning, according to a Facebook post by the police.

There officers encountered a 2006 Honda minivan “with extensive damage” 200 yards west of an at-grade crossing at Euclid Avenue.

The driver, a 36-year-old male, and two female passengers, 38 and 10, were both pronounced dead at the scene. Three boys, ranging from 7 to 10, were hospitalized in critical condition.

Police said video shows the minivan “disregarding and going around the crossing gate, which was down and operational.”
