A Fort Hood soldier and his female passenger were killed early this morning when their truck collided with a passing train.

We caught investigators at the scene today documenting and taking pictures at the intersection.

The collision happened around two this morning. Officials say the crossing arms were down and working.

The driver maneuvered the 2010 Dodge Charger through the barricade and was immediately struck by the oncoming train.

Both the man and woman were pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy will determine wether drugs or alchol was involved.

The victims identities have not been released.
