Two men have suffered what authorities describe as "significant injuries" after they were struck by a freight train as they drove over a crossing.
The collision happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday at Pikewood Lane and County Road 80 in Otter Tail County, according to the sheriff's office.
Police say that a 2001 Ford Explorer being driven by a 39-year-old man from Darfur, Minnesota, was crossing the railroad when it was struck by a Burlington North Santa Fe train.
The driver and a 36-year-old passenger from Audubon were taken to Perham Health ER with significant injuries.
The collision is under investigation.
