Police in eastern Oklahoma say four people are dead and one is injured after a train hit the car they were riding in.

Poteau Assistant Police Chief Greg Russell says it happened around 1:30 Sunday afternoon when the car tried to cross railroad tracks at an intersection without crossing bars.

A juvenile was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

None of the victims was immediately identified.

The Kansas City Southern train did not derail and the conductor and engineer were not injured.

Poteau is about 15 miles from the Arkansas border.
