MACON, Ga.  — A coroner says a woman and her infant daughter died at a hospital in Macon after the car they were riding in was hit by a train in Houston County.

Houston County coroner Danny Galpin tells WMAZ-TV  that Donnell Reid and her 1-month-old daughter, Kinsley, were pronounced dead at hospitals following the crash.

Galpin says the child's father, Willy Lyons, was driving the vehicle when the accident happened around 5 p.m. Sunday. Lyons underwent surgery at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. Galpin says authorities believe Lyons didn't see the train.

Galpin did not have an update on Lyons' condition.

The Houston County Emergency Management Agency says the Houston County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident.

Oh this is so sad

In many areas the train crossings are not lit nor do they have arms that come down. You look both ways, but there was one time I zoned out and looked up to see a train bearing down on me. I barely made it. I am very sorry for the loved ones of these folks.
