BALTIMORE - A woman died and two people sustained injuries Thursday when the vehicle they were in collided with two light-rail trains at an intersection in Baltimore.

The car was travelling east on a downtown Baltimore street around 7:30 a.m. when it crashed with a light-rail train moving south, the Baltimore Police Department said in a statement. The vehicle was then struck by another light-rail train travelling north. The collision left the vehicle wedged between the two trains.

Baltimore Fire Department spokeswoman Blair Adams said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. A 7-year-old child and a 30-year-old man were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said a light-rail conductor was also taken to a hospital. It is unclear if the conductor suffered any injuries.

Police said investigators will review footage of surveillance cameras in the area that may have captured the crash.
