(AP) - Officials say two teens have been killed and two more are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after their pickup truck was hit by a freight train in rural south-central Iowa.

The Iowa State Patrol says the crash happened around 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Clarke County when the eastbound pickup collided with a BNSF Railway train at a crossing east of Murray. Investigators say four teens were in the truck at the time of the crash, and two died at the scene.

The two others suffered life-threatening injuries and were flown by medical helicopter to a hospital. Authorities have not released the teens’ names.
