Third teen in Louisville train crash dies from injuries

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office says a third teen has died after a train struck a car in Louisville.

Jefferson County Deputy Coroner David Wood told media that 17-year-old Nagin Thapa died Thursday of traumatic brain injury at University of Louisville Hospital.

Two others died Saturday at the scene of the crash: 19-year-old Suk Man Rai and 16-year-old Chita Chuwan.

Kentucky Refugee Ministries said a fourth teen, Kismat Mishra, is still hospitalized and is making "small improvements each day."

Jefferson County Public Schools spokesman Ben Jackey has said that all four were students.

Police say the car was hit after disregarding the train signal.
