TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A young mother has died after her car was hit by a train in Tuscaloosa County.

Tuscaloosa Fire Marshal Gene Holcomb tells news outlets that 21-year-old Savanna Lee Smith, of Moundville, was pronounced dead at the scene after the train collided with her SUV on Thursday morning. She was the vehicle’s only occupant.

The Tuscaloosa News (https://bit.ly/2jrkrVl ) reports that Smith had a 2-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter.

Multiple agencies are investigating the crash.

This is the second fatal train crash in the county this week. On Monday night, 20-year-old LSU student Katie Keogh was fatally struck by a train while walking back from a bar after the College Football Playoff National Championship game.
