JEANERETTE, La. (AP) _ A woman and four children, including a 2-year-old boy, were killed Saturday when their car was struck on a railroad crossing by the Sunset Limited, a passenger train headed from New Orleans to Los Angeles, state police said.

''About all I can tell you is that a southbound car drove into the path of a westbound train. The train drug the car for about a half-mile and all five occupants of the car were killed,'' said State Police Sgt. Richard Hazelwood.

State police information officer Mike Edmonson said the accident occurred at a crossing on La. 318 about 100 miles west of New Orleans that was marked only by a wooden sign - no flashing lights or ringing bells.

The victims were identified as Louise J. Moloof, 33, of Jeanerette; Amos LeBlanc, 2, believed to be from Port Arthur, Texas; Monique Hines, 15; Tracey Brown, 15, and Shelly Duffy, 11, all of Franklin, La.

The Amtrak train of two engines and nine cars was delayed for about two hours.
