Two teenage girls were killed early Tuesday when a train derailed on the bridge they were sitting on, spilling coal and burying the young , police in Maryland said.

Rose Mayr and Elizabeth Nass, both 19, were apparently sitting on a bridge ledge in Ellicott City, Maryland, just after midnight with their backs to the train when it derailed, according to a written statement from Howard County police.

The two girls posted photos to Twitter shortly before the crash. One showed feet dangling over a road, with the caption “Levitating.” Another appeared to look down Main Street.

Nass tweeted, “Drinking on top of the Ellicott City sign with @ r0se_petals.” The name Ellicott City is painted on the railroad bridge.
