BERLIN (AP) — Police say a collision between a freight train and a car in southeastern Austria killed two people.

The collision happened at a crossing near the small town of Wildon on Wednesday. Police spokesman Fritz Grundnig told the Austria Press Agency that a man and a woman in the car were killed.

The car was pushed some 100 meters (nearly 330 feet) along the track by the train. It was not immediately clear why the car was on the tracks at the crossing.
