A CSX train hauling coal derailed and fell from a bridge in Ellicott City outside Baltimore, killing two people and crushing vehicles in a parking lot, authorities said.

Twenty-one of the train's 80 cars flipped over around midnight Monday, Howard County officials said. Some of the train cars crushed parked vehicles in a nearby county-owned lot, County Executive Ken Ulman said. Cranes were brought in Tuesday morning to remove train cars from the vehicles so they can be searched for other potential victims.
