Two Teenage Girls Killed by Amtrak Train in Pa. Could Be Suicide, Police Say

Police in Pennsylvania say they are trying to determine whether two teenage girls who were struck and killed by a high-speed Amtrak train might have committed suicide.

An Acela train traveling from Boston to Washington, D.C., hit the 10th-graders about 10:30 a.m. Thursday in Norwood, about 10 miles southwest of Philadelphia.

Family members and classmates at Interboro Senior High School said 16-year-old Gina Gentile and 15-year-old Vanessa Dorwart were upset about the death of Gentile's boyfriend. Seventeen-year-old William Bradley was killed by a car while riding his bicycle last month.

Norwood Police Chief Mark Del Vecchio says investigators are checking reports that the girls might have killed themselves.
