Police in South Charleston say a teenage girl was killed early Sunday morning after being struck by a CSX train.
CSX says the two-engine train was traveling from Mira, Kentucky to Weldon, Virginia when it passed through South Charleston at a few minutes after midnight.
South Charleston Mayor Frank Mullens says a girl, who was a student at South Charleston High School, walked into the path of the train near Chestnut and McClung streets in what the mayor describes as an apparent suicide.
CSX confirms the accident but has referred all other questions to the South Charleston Police Dept.
The train had 90 freight cars.
