GARY, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a woman from Gary and a man from Chicago were killed when the car they were in was struck by a train in Gary.

The Lake County coroner’s office has identified the victims as 29-year-old Renee Mckenzie and 32-year-old William McCurry. Both died of blunt force trauma.

The Post-Tribune reports the collision occurred before 6 a.m. Friday, causing traffic backup for hours. Gary police have not released any information about the collision.

Three teenagers were killed at the same crossing four years ago.
