Over 30 Injured After Pennsylvania Train Crash

At approximately 12:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning, an inbound Norristown High Speed Line train crashed into an unoccupied train that was sitting parked at the 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby Township, PA.

According to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), 33 people were injured in the accident. Some media outlets are reporting that number as high as 42. Most of those injuries have been reported as non-life threatening; however, according to Upper Darby Mayor Thomas Micozzie, at least four people sustained serious injuries. The conductor is among those who were injured although his condition remains private.

Three of the critically injured were sent to Lankenau Medical Center for medical attention while the fourth was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. All other passengers were sent to local hospitals, including Delaware County Memorial Hospital, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, Misericordia Community Hospital, Springfield Hospital and Taylor Hospital.

"My face hit the wall, put a big hole in the wall and I went straight down and I blacked out," reported one of the passengers in the accident. "There was blood everywhere. The driver is all banged up and there was this one girl bleeding out of her face pretty bad."

Currently, the cause of the crash is unknown and remains under investigation.
