— Two people are dead after a train accident in Smithfield Saturday night.

Smithfield police said Carlos Dubose, 35, of Smithfield, and Larry Allen, 34, of Smithfield, died about 11:30 p.m. when they were struck by a freight train.

The two people were standing side-by-side next to the track and did not move after the train engineer blew the horn several times to warn them, police said.

The crew couldn't stop the train before the collision, police said. Investigators said the two men were roommates.
