HOUSTON One teen was killed and a man was injured Friday after a train hit their vehicle, police said.
The fatal wreck happened around 4 p.m. at the railroad tracks near Highway 90 and FM 1909 in Liberty County.
The train and Ford Sport Trac were westbound until 20-year-old John Kolin Allison pulled into the train s path. Allison was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston in critical condition. His passenger 16-year-old William James Hotaling was killed on impact.

There was no indication that alcohol played a part in the crash.
