HENRYVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Transportation officials are looking for ways to improve safety at a southern Indiana railroad crossing where two children died after the SUV they were riding in collided with a train.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says 4-year-old Wyatt James Isaac Fouch and 5-year-old Adalynn Noel Fouch died following Wednesday’s collision with a CSX freight train in Henryville, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Louisville, Kentucky.

Their 29-year-old mother was hospitalized in serious but stable condition. The family is from Henryville.

The sheriff’s department says there have been other accidents at the crossing, which has blinking lights. Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Harry Maginity says the department is going to be looking “at what’s wrong there and what we can do to improve it.”
