SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Authorities in Sulphur responded to an accident involving a train and vehicle on Saturday.

Sulphur Police said the accident happened near Doiron and Napoleon Streets (Hwy. 90) involving an Amtrak train.

According to officials, a vehicle with three people failed to yield the warnings from the signal lights and train's horn and went through the crossing.

Driver Suzie Hantz, 44, and two other passengers were responsive and taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Sulphur Police said the passenger in the back seat was ejected.

Sulphur Police said the train was headed westbound and struck a 1994 Ford Escort, which was heavily damaged.

The train finally stopped west of Huntington street. The Doiron and Huntington street railroad crossings are blocked.

The Doiron Street crossing does not have crossing arms but does have the safety lights.
