SIDNEY, Ind. Northern Indiana police say a Laketon man and his young daughter are dead following an early morning collision between a car and a train.

The Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department says a car was struck about 4:40 a.m. Friday by a Norfolk Southern freight train at the State Road 13 crossing in the town of Sidney, about 30 miles west of Fort Wayne.

WANE-TV reports the coroner's office identified the victims as 37-year-old Wesley Teague Cox and his 4-year-old daughter, Grace Cox. Both were declared dead at the scene.

Police say Cox was heading northbound on State Road 13 when his 2008 Mazda pulled into the path of the eastbound 61-car freight train.

The crash is still under investigation.
