Officials: 33 injured in suburban Philadelphia train crash

Baku, August 22, AZERTAC

More than 30 people were injured when a train crashed into another train that was parked at a station in suburban Philadelphia, according to Associated Press.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority said the crash happened around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday.

An inbound Norristown High Speed Line train crashed into an unoccupied, parked train at the 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby, said SEPTA spokeswoman Heather Redfern.

SEPTA said 33 people aboard the train were injured.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation.

SEPTA said there likely would be service disruptions for the Tuesday morning commute.

In February, four people were injured in a crash near the 69th Street Terminal involving three out-of-service commuter trains. At the time, SEPTA said one train rear-ended another on a loop where trains turn around to get back into service. Cars from that accident derailed and hit a third train on nearby tracks.
