Two Chilliwack teens were injured after a train collided with a tractor at an uncontrolled crossing on South Sumas Road Sunday.

Police said the train was hauling grain trailers when it hit the tractor at around 11:45 a.m.

The tractor's driver, a 15-year-old boy, was airlifted to BC Children's Hospital with serious injuries and is in stable condition, according to police.

RCMP said another teen riding in a trailer behind the tractor jumped out before it was struck by the train. He was taken to a Chilliwack hospital with minor injuries.

No one on the train was injured.
