WALKERTON, Ind. (AP) - Police say a car-train collision in northern Indiana has injured two people.

WNDU-TV and WSBT-TV report the car was a total loss following the collision about 8 a.m. Sunday on State Road 104 in Walkerton, about 20 miles southwest of South Bend.

Police say the car was behind an 18-ft box truck when 33-year-old Maurice Richmond drove around the truck and a crossing arm.

Walkerton Police Sgt. Charles Kulp says Richmond was issued a summons for driving under the influence of a controlled substance. He also was cited for failing to yield, operating under the influence, endangering a life, and operating without a license.

Richmond was hospitalized with a broken neck and 39-year-old Heather Lentz was treated for minor injuries.

Kulp says the two are lucky to be alive.
