Seattle’s TV News station, King5.com, reports that two teenagers , a boy and a girl, were struck and killed by an Amtrak train around 7:10pm on Tuesday night in Woodland, Washington.
The pair were apparently standing on the northbound tracks waiting for a southbound freight train to pass before they crossed the tracks. They probably did not hear the sound of the approaching Amtrak train though the engineer put on the brakes and blew the whistle.
Officials have not released the teens names but a Portland news station says they were Katie Blacklaw and Eddie Densin, freshmen at Woodland High School.
Woodland, Washington is approximately 20 miles north of Vancouver and 85 miles south of Olympia
