Arlington Police responded to a call just before 12 p.m. on Saturday. The crash occurred on Calloway Cemetery Road between a Trinity Railway Express train and a commercial truck. The two people that died were in the truck.
A Fox 5 report also revealed that 11 people on the train were injured in the crash and have been hospitalized. 2 of them were reported to be in critical condition while 3 others sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
According to The Dallas Morning News, train passengers were brought to a local strip club to use the restrooms, and then a shuttle bus arrived to take them to Fort Worth.
The cause of the crash is still unclear.
