Officials said two people were killed when their car was hit by a train in the White Castle area Thursday. 

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office reported the car was hit in the area of LA 1 and Dorsey Road. Sheriff Brett Stassi confirmed two people are dead.

The two victims have been identified as a sister and brother from Baton Rouge, 42-year-old Myra Henderson and 41-year-old Byron Henderson. Stassi said that the two siblings were on their way to a wake.
