Crash at tracks injures 2

Two people were injured Monday night in a crash southeast of Auburn.

A pickup truck driven by Brent A. Marti, 45, of St. Joe, was going north on DeKalb County Road 35 about 10:20 p.m. when it struck a Toyota Camry waiting behind a pickup at a train crossing in the 5200 block, according to a statement issued by the county sheriff's department.

The driver of the car, Sheryl K. Peitzman, 61, of Auburn, had a cut on the head, the sheriff's department said. She and Marti were taken to a Fort Wayne hospital.

Peitzman was later listed in fair condition at Parkview Hospital.

There was no information indicating that the third driver in the wreck was injured.
