KLAMATH FALLS (AP) — Oregon State Police say a southern Oregon man and his sister-in-law were killed and his brother was seriously injured when their Jeep Cherokee was hit by a freight train at a marked rail crossing south of Klamath Falls.

Police identified the SUV driver in Tuesday’s collision as 33-year-old MacKenzie Conway. He and his 25-year-old sister-in-law Kalla Conway were dead at the scene. Rear seat passenger 27-year-old Nicholas Conway was ejected and seriously injured, but was able to walk across U.S. Highway 97 to a market to get help. He was taken to a hospital.

State police say Nicholas and Kalla Conway were married. The driver and the surviving passenger were brothers. All were from Klamath Falls.
