3 Dead After Car Drives Into Path of Train

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a train smashed into a
sedan that drove into its path in central Florida, launching the
car into the air and killing three.

Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Miller said two men
and one woman in the car died Friday when the Amtrak train hit it
around 7 p.m. in Orlando. Their names have not been released.

A fourth occupant of the car was taken to the hospital in
critical but stable condition.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari says none of the 185 passengers
or crew on the train were hurt. The Florida Highway Patrol says the
car drove past the crossing's lowered gates and into the train's
path.

Authorities say the impact launched the car into the air, and it
landed about 200 feet away.
