ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WUSA) -- Tuesday afternoon, while National Transportation Safety Board officials investigated the cause behind the Ellicott City train derailment accident that left two 19-year-old women dead, Twitter acted as an eerie memoriam chronicling the moments leading up to the deaths of Elizabeth Nass and Rose Louise Mayr.

The Twitter accounts of Nass and Mayr remained active after the crash, and the women actually posted photos of the Ellicott City scene they observed less than an hour before their lives ended.

One of the two photos uploaded by Mayr featured what appeared to be the two ladies' feet dangling in the air with the caption "Levitating".

Nass also tweeted just a short time before the tragic moment that she and Mayr were drinking: "Drinking on top of the Ellicott City sign with(Mayr)".

Possibly the most disturbing tweet, though, was sent by Nass to Mayr on August 19, mentioning Burnett's vodka and a bizarrely foreshadowed reference to transportation.

"(Rose) Once more before I leave for school.... you, me, a handle of burnett's, and some form of public transportation".

Take a look at the gallery above of the tweets and photos to see exactly how things played out.
