CSX Train Derails Outside Baltimore, Killing 2

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) - Authorities outside Baltimore say a CSX train hauling coal derailed and fell from a bridge in downtown Ellicott City, killing two people and crushing vehicles in a parking lot.
    
Howard County officials say 21 of the train's 80 cars flipped over around midnight Monday. County Executive Ken Ulman says some of the train cars crushed parked vehicles in a nearby county-owned lot.
    
The two people who were killed were on the tracks at the time of the incident and were not railroad employees. The identities of the victims have not been released.
    
It's unclear what caused the crash. A CSX team is investigating.
    
Ulman says crews were working to clean up the coal that spilled from the train. Streets in the area remained closed early Tuesday.
