WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Two people are dead after a car was hit by a train in Slaughters.

It happened around 5 p.m. Sunday on KY-138.

The victims were reportedly at the rail crossing, and the stop arm was down.

Officials says it looks like the driver saw a train that had stopped and assumed that was why the arm was down. The driver then decided to go around the stop arm. As this happened, a northbound train hit the car, killing two people.

The incident remains under investigation.
