FOSTORIA - Two young girls were hurt Thursday night when the car they were in drove into the path of an oncoming train.
Amanda Potter, 10, and her sister Dominique, 4, were listed in serious but stable condition at the Toledo Hospital.
According to Fostoria police officials, Denise Potter, 41, of Fostoria was driving on Town Street at 11:27 p.m. when she drove into the path of a Norfolk Southern train, Fostoria police reported. She refused treatment at the scene.
