ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) -- A James Madison University student is one of two college students who died in a train derailment in Maryland.
The CSX train hauling coal derailed around midnight Monday and fell from a bridge near Baltimore, killing the students who were on the tracks and crushing vehicles in a parking lot.
Authorities say 21 of the train's 80 cars flipped over. Cranes were brought in Tuesday morning to remove train cars from the vehicles at a county-owned lot so they could be searched for other potential victims.
Howard County officials say JMU student Elizabeth Conway Nass and University of Delaware student Rose Louese Mayr were killed. They were both 19.
Police did not immediately say what the women were doing on the tracks.
CSX spokesman Bob Sullivan said that the train was traveling from Grafton, W.Va., to Baltimore. The National Transportation Safety Board was investigating.
