BATAVIA (KWWL) -

Two children are dead and two other people are in the hospital after a minivan collided with a train in Jefferson County.

The Iowa State Patrol reports it happened Monday at 4:07 p.m. at the 4th Street railroad crossing in Batavia. 

Officials say 25-year-old Tara Lewman stopped at a train crossing, but after waiting for some time she crossed the tracks -- driving between the lowered cross arms and into the path of the train. 

Lewman and her passenger, one-year-old Jordan Clark, were taken to the hospital. There is no word on their current conditions.

Authorities have not released the names of the two that died.
