A woman has died and two people, including a child, are hurt after a crash Thursday morning involving two light-rail trains in downtown Baltimore. 

The crash occurred at N. Howard and W. Mulberry streets. 

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. A 7-year-old and a 30-year-old man were taken to a hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. 

The car was traveling east on a downtown Baltimore street at about 7:30 a.m. when it crashed with a light-rail train moving south, the Baltimore Police Department said in a statement. The vehicle was then struck by another light-rail train traveling north. The collision left the vehicle wedged between the trains.

Police said a light-rail conductor also was taken to a hospital. It is unclear if the conductor suffered any injuries.

Chopper4 footage from over the scene shows a crushed car.

Information was not immediately released on how the crash occurred. Police said investigators will review footage of surveillance cameras in the area that may have captured the crash.
