CARY — A woman is dead and a man seriously injured after their car was struck by an Amtrak train.

Town of Cary spokeswoman Susan Moran says the accident occurred Thursday morning at a rail crossing on Southwest Maynard Road. The woman was declared dead at the scene. A man pulled from the wreckage was transported to WakeMed in Raleigh.
