A child was among the three victims killed when a passenger train hit a pickup truck, officials said.

The northbound Amtrak train struck a Dodge truck on Friday evening in North Tonawanda, New York, a town between Niagara Falls and Buffalo, police reported.

The victims included a 6-year-old boy, a 66-year-old woman, and a 69-year-old man, according to North Tonawanda Police Captain Daryl Truty in a statement posted on Saturday. The names of the victims were not released as of Sunday morning.

None of the Amtrak crew or its 21 passengers were injured, stated Amtrak spokesperson Olivia Irvin. The train was traveling from New York City to Niagara Falls when the crash occurred.

The pickup was so severely damaged that heavy equipment was needed to reach the victims, the North Tonawanda firefighter’s union said in a statement. All three victims died at the scene.

Further details, including the exact location of the vehicle at the time of the crash, were not released.

Local television and print media reported that the pickup had become trapped between railroad gates at a rail crossing. Reports from WIVB and The Buffalo News indicated there was a disabled vehicle and police vehicles near the crossing before the crash.

Messages seeking comment were left Sunday with North Tonawanda police and mayoral officials.
