    Five people were killed and another person was seriously injured after a vehicle collided into an Amtrak train in Colorado Sunday, NBC News reported. 

    Two of the victims were adults and four were children, according to NBC station KUSA. All six were in the vehicle. The survivor, a young girl, was airlifted to a hospital. 

    State patrol said they didn't suspect drugs or alcohol, although failure to yield right of way was being investigated as the factor in the collision, which took place just after noon ET near the New Mexico state line. 

    The train was traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles. It had 286 passengers on board.
