BAKER COUNTY, Fla. -- Two people were taken to the hospital in serious condition Friday afternoon after their vehicle hit a train.

A Florida Highway Patrol release says Cynthia Gordon, 36, was driving north on County Road 127 with 16-year-old Ashley Suggs and were crossing the tracks at State Road 2 when they collided with the train.

FHP Sgt. Dylan Bryan says speed may have been a factor in the incident, which occurred about 1 p.m.

Bryan says the railroad lights were working at the time; however, there are no crossing arms at the intersection.
