Metra: 2 dead, 4 others hurt in train-car crash in Chicago

CHICAGO -- A spokesman for Chicago's commuter train service says two people were killed and four others injured when a Metra train struck a car on Chicago's southwest side.

Metra spokesman Michael Gillis said Monday night that an 18-year-old woman and a 20-year-old woman died from their injuries.

He says the injured included a 3-year-old male, a 17-year-old male and a 17-year-old female. Their injuries weren't considered life-threatening. Gillis says a 20-year-old male was in serious condition.

The spokesman says that the 17-year-old male was driving.

CBS Chicago reports those killed were Juniel Kemp, 20, and Alexis Kemp, 18, both of Chicago, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police earlier said the patients were transported to Advocate Christ Hospital.

Gillis says the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Officials say no passengers on the train were injured.
