RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) - A small college in eastern Indiana says a student from suburban San Francisco was killed and two others hurt when they were hit by a train while walking near a group of nightclubs.

Richmond police Capt. Bill Shake says investigators didn't immediately know how the three Earlham College students came to be hit while walking about 1:15 a.m. Friday near the city's depot district.

Earlham officials identify the student who died as senior Therese Heymann of Burlingame, Calif., and say the two injured students were airlifted to a Dayton, Ohio, hospital. Classes at the Quaker-affiliated college of about 1,200 students were suspended for Friday.

The Palladium-Item reports Thursday had been designated College Night in the depot district and Earlham provided shuttle transportation to the area near the city's downtown.
