The visitation for two, young sisters killed when their van was hit by a train is Saturday afternoon.

4-year-old Erica Clark and 5-year-old sister Callie were killed Monday in Batavia.

A visitation for the sisters will be Saturday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Grace Funeral Care at 1010 3rd Street in Batavia.

A joint funeral will be held at 1 o’clock Sunday at the same location.

The girls’ mother, 25-year-old Tara Lewman and her daughter, one-year-old Jordan Ann Clark survived the crash.

Authorities say it appears Lewman drove around the lowered crossing arms. Troopers say a train stopped for maintenance blocked Lewman’s view of the second oncoming train.
