Two children have died in a collision at a train crossing in southeast Iowa.

Authorities say the accident occurred at tracks in Batavia, Iowa, a little after 4:00 p.m. on Monday, April 1, 2013.

An Iowa State Patrol report says a minivan driven by 25-year-old Tara Lewman, had stopped at the crossing, but after some time, police say she drove around the crossing arms.

The train struck the passenger side.

According to the police report, 4-year-old Erika Clark and 5-year-old Kallie Clark were killed.

The driver and 1-year-old Jordan Clark were flown to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
