<VIDEO>      ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) - Police say the two women killed in a Maryland train derailment were 19-year-old college students.
     The women were on the tracks when a CSX train hauling coal derailed and fell from a bridge outside of Baltimore. The train also crushed cars in a parking lot below the bridge.
     Howard County police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn says the victims were Elizabeth Conway Nass, a student at James Madison University in Virginia, and Rose Louese Mayr, a student at the University of Delaware.
     Police did not immediately say what the women were doing on the tracks. Authorities planned a news conference later Tuesday morning.
