Coal train derailment

Investigators walk up the tracks, at the scene of a train derailment on a freight rail line the snakes along the Patapsco River and crosses Main Street in historic Ellicott City. At left is the historic downtown district; at right of the bridge is the river crossing to Baltimore County. Two people were reported killed in the mishap as investigators sift through the wreckage, while interviewing witnesses to rebuild a timeline of events. Baltimore Sun photo by Karl Merton Ferron
