PROSPECT, Ohio -

Troopers are investigating an injury crash involving a car and a train in Marion County Monday evening.

Troopers from the Marion post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to the railroad crossing near Park Avenue and Railroad Street, in the Village of Prospect, at about 7:22 p.m. Monday.

According to the report, 18-year-old Connor Helman was driving a 2009 Pontiac G-6 eastbound on Park Street, near Railroad Street, just before the crash.

A CSX Transportation train was traveling southbound on the railroad tracks, approaching Park Street when troopers say Helman attempted to cross the tracks in front of the train. The front of Helman's Pontiac G-6 struck the side of the lead engine of the train.

Helman, and his passenger, 21-year-old Brandon Phillips, were air-lifted to Grant Medical Center where they were listed in stable condition. No CSX personnel sustained any injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
