Fatal Train Derailment in MD Kills Two

Two young women were killed after a freight train derailed in suburban Baltimore.

FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports:

Audio clip:

Those two female students were walking on an elevated railroad bridge when the CSX train, 80 cars long and loaded with coal, derailed.

Twenty-one of the rail cars actually flipped over, falling from the bridge and into a parking lot, smashing the vehicles below.

It happened in Ellicott City, Maryland, a town noted for picturesque bars, restaurants and shops.

The two train operators were not hurt.

Investigators have not said what the two young women were doing on the tracks or what triggered the derailment.
