Two people were hospitalized early Sunday after their car was hit by a train near Lake Houston.
Around 2 a.m., the driver of the car tried rushing across a set of train tracks in front of an oncoming train near Old Atascocita and Fairlake.
After crashing through one of the guard arms, the car was hit by the train and pushed off the roadway into nearby bushes, according to authorities.
A woman was thrown from the car and later flown to the hospital in unknown condition. A man was rushed by ambulance to the hospital, also in unknown condition.
Houston police are continuing to investigate.
