TIVOLI, N.Y., Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Two Bard College students were killed in a hit-and-run accident in the village of Tivoli, N.Y., near the campus, police said.

The college community held a midnight service service Saturday in honor of Evelina Brown, 20, of Seattle and Sarah McCausland, 19, of Winnetka, Ill., who died Friday night, the Poughkeepsie (N.Y.) Journal reported.

The Dutchess County Sheriff's Office said the two women were walking northbound on 9G when they were struck by a vehicle traveling southbound.

"This is an unfathomable tragedy, and our thoughts are with victims' families," said Leon Botstein, president of Bard College.
