Firefighters said three people died at the scene, while two others suffered critical injuries, ABC 7 reported.

One survivor was flown to the hospital while the other was transported by ambulance.

First responders are called at this location once or twice a year because the train crossing has no traffic guard, officials said.

The cause of the accident is currently being investigated.
