EUDORA, Kan. (AP) – A train has injured two people on a bridge in northeast Kansas.

Douglas County dispatchers say emergency personnel responded Saturday afternoon to the accident west of downtown Eudora. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that all train traffic was stopped while emergency vehicles parked on the tracks to attend to the victims.

Two helicopters were called in to transport the severely injured victims. One person was taken to the University of Kansas Medical Center, while the other was flown to Children’s Mercy Hospital.
