A Burlingame woman attending a small college in Indiana was killed and two other people were injured when they were struck by a train early this morning, according to the school and local police.

Therese Heymann, 21, a senior at Earlham College, was killed in the accident, reported just after 1 a.m. in Richmond, Ind., police and school officials said.

The other two students were airlifted to a hospital for treatment of various injuries, police said.

The trio was walking in the area when they were struck, according to police.

Earlham College, a Quaker-affiliated school, suspended classes today following the tragedy.

"This is one of the worst scenarios we can imagine," Earlham President David Dawson said in a statement. "This is a very tightly knit community and tragedies such as this affect us all very deeply."
