Six people are dead and a seventh is seriously injured after a train-car collision in southeastern Colorado today.
Authorities say five people died at the scene and a sixth died later at a Denver hospital. The survivor was seriously injured but no other details have been released.
Authorities say the victims were in a sport-utility vehicle that was northbound on a county road near Granada in southeastern Colorado when it was hit by the westbound freight train of the BNSF Railway.
Nobody aboard the train was hurt.
The Prowers County coroner says the victims were migrant workers.
Authorities say the SUV had Texas plates and investigators found identification papers from Texas and Montana.
B-N-S-F spokeswoman Lena Kent says the crossing is marked by signs, but there are no lights or gates.
