Two people from Rutland have been treated for injuries they suffered when their van was hit by a freight train this morning.

Vermont State Police say the red warning lights were operating at Vermont Route Three when Wilma Foster, who’s 78, drove her van onto the crossing.

Police say the vehicle was then struck by the Green Mountain Railroad locomotive.

The train pushed the van and pinned it against a railroad sign.

Rutland Town firefighters and members of the Rutland Regional Ambulance Service freed Foster and a passenger, 59-year-old Lee Santwire from the van.

They were treated at the Rutland Regional Medical Center.
