Teen Hit, Killed By Freight Train North Of Sacramento, 2nd Teen Hurt

MARYSVILLE, Yuba County (CBS / AP) — A teenage boy is dead and a teenage girl critically injured after they were hit by a freight train while walking to a high school dance in Northern California.

CalFire Capt. Dennis Hunt said the accident happened Friday evening across the street from the school in Marysville, and near a little league park where a game was being played.

Hunt said the boy died at the scene and the girl was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition.

The town has one high school, and a school board official told the Marysville Appeal-Democrat that the victims were heading to a Sadie Hawkins day dance.

People who were at the game said they heard a long blowing of the train’s horn, and many raced to the scene as the train came to a stop.
