A driver died and a passenger was hurt Thursday when their vehicle collided with a DART train in Richardson.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit spokesman Morgan Lyons said initial reports indicate that the driver went through through or around crossing arms early Thursday morning.

The driver was declared dead at the scene, Lyons said, and another person in the vehicle was taken to the hospital with back and neck injuries.

Lyons says two passengers on the light-rail train also were hurt: One was taken to a hospital with back and neck injuries; the other was treated at the scene.
