ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two people are in a St. Louis hospital in serious condition after their car was struck by a light rail train.

KSDK-TV reports that the accident happened Tuesday morning when the vehicle drove through a fence and ended up on a MetroLink track. An eastbound train was unable to stop and struck the car.

The victims are a man and woman, both in their 20s.

MetroLink officials say there were several people on the train, but they were not hurt.
