RIVER EDGE, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey Transit train and a car collided at a crossing, seriously injuring two people in the vehicle.

The accident at the Main Street crossing in River Edge occurred around 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

The train had departed from Spring Valley, New York and was headed to Hoboken, New Jersey. There were about 400 people aboard, but no crew or passengers were injured.

Authorities say a father and son who were in the car suffered serious injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Both were being treated at hospitals, but their names and further details on their conditions were not disclosed.

Rail service on the Pascack Valley Line was suspended in both directions for about two hours while the crash was investigated.
