ERIE TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Two people were sent to the hospital after their car collided with a train Thursday in Erie Township, highway patrol says.
Jeremiah Pitts, 35, of Lacarne, and Kenneth Godfrey, 32, of Port Clinton, were driving south on Tettau Road and did not stop at the railroad crossing.
The vehicle struck a train car on the right side, pushing the car into the railroad crossing sign.
Pitts was taken to Magruder Hospital in Port Clinton. His injuries are not life threatening.
Godfrey was flown to St. Vincent's Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, where he is in stable condition.
The train crew was not injured.
The car, a 1989 Eagle Summit, was heavily damaged, but the train only had minor damage.
All railroad crossing lights and gates were working properly at the time of the crash. There is no word on whether Pitts and Godfrey were wearing seatbelts.
Alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash, highway patrol said.
The crash is still under investigation.
