Four people were killed when their SUV collided with a freight train in south suburban Harvey early Wednesday.

The accident happened around 2 a.m. at 155th and Halsted streets, according to Harvey spokesman Jason Baumann.

The Dodge Durango drove through a protective gate and struck the last car of a moving CSX freight train, Baumann said.

Emergency crews were alerted by a passerby who saw the SUV on fire at the crossing, Baumann said.

The driver was identified as Jeremy Robinson, 37, of Riverdale and his passengers were Xavier Moore, 23, of Chicago, Tieasha Rush, 28, of Chicago, Jada Moore, 39, of Chicago, according to Baumann.

The village of Phoenix will handle the remainder of the investigation.
