CANTON, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio woman who was a passenger in a car when a train hit it on Sunday has been killed, and the driver was seriously injured.

Thirty-one-year-old Raven Nicole Caskey was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision in Clinton Township, about 40 miles west of Canton.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office says that 32-year-old Jennifer Phillips of Millersburg was driving when the vehicle went off the left side of the road just after 1 a.m. Sunday.

A train hit Caskey’s side of the vehicle, killing her. Phillips was taken to Akron City Hospital with serious injuries.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that police have not yet determined whether alcohol played a factor in the crash, which is under investigation.
