CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

There were no injuries in the second wreck involving a train and a vehicle Wednesday afternoon in South Caddo Parish in less than 3 hours. 

A truck was hit by a train at a crossing at Highway 1 and Ellerbe Road just after 4:30 p.m. CPSO spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick says there are no crossing arms or lights at that location, but a spokeswoman for Union Pacific points out that there are railroad crossing and yield signs. 

The  train was headed southbound when it collided with a trailer being pulled by a truck on Ellerbe Rd. There were 2 people in the truck. No one was injured. 

Elizabeth Hutchison with Union Pacific says the collision is under investigation. 

An elderly Keithville couple was killed at another crossing on the southern part of the parish just three hours before.  85-year-old Wilson Evans was at the wheel, and his wife, 79-year-old Kathleen Evans were pronounced dead at the scene, after their pickup truck was struck by a Union Pacific train.
