Ohio woman killed after train hits car

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman who was a passenger in a car when a train hit it on Sunday has been killed, and the driver was seriously injured.

Thirty-one-year-old Raven Nicole Caskey was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision in Clinton Township, about 40 miles west of Canton.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says that 32-year-old Jennifer Phillips of Millersburg was driving when the vehicle went off the left side of the road just after 1 a.m. Sunday.

A train hit Caskey's side of the vehicle, killing her. Phillips was taken to Akron City Hospital with serious injuries.
