(VICKSBURG) - A jeep in Greene County was involved in an accident with a train Friday afternoon sending 4 people to the hospital.

According to State Police Bloomington, a Jeep driven by 25-year-old Seath Stevenson of Linton was southbound on CR400 North when, reports say, he tried to cross a railroad crossing a half mile west of IN-59 as an Indiana Railroad train was crossing through.

The Jeep was struck on the passenger rear quarter panel by the locomotive sending the vehicle into a spin.

Stevenson, his fiancée 22-year-old Erica Harmon and their 18-month old son Lucas were all treated and released at the scene by Greene County General Hospital EMTs.

Harmon's 6-year-old son Christopher Perez was airlifted to Riley Hospital in Indianapolis.

Right now, Perez's condition is not known, and troopers are continuing to investigate the accident.
