“At 12:10 this evening Upper Darby received a call that an inbound Norristown high-speed train came into the terminal and hit a stationed car that was sitting in the terminal unoccupied. That car did move and the trolley itself—the passengers—were injured.,” said Upper Darby Mayor Thomas Micozzie. Micozzie says of the 33 people on the train, four people, including the train’s conductor, were rushed to the hospital.

I heard something about a terrorist organization looking for lone wolves to derail trains on the news yesterday. I wonder if this is related? Thx for the OP.

The new edition of Al Qaeda's online propaganda magazine, known as Inspire, calls on its followers to target trains in the US and Europe, identifying three methods of attack: the train's compartments, derailments or assaults on stations. However, a Department of Homeland Security bulletin reviewed by Fox News indicates there is no credible or imminent threat.


This?

Looks like there was no loss of life but 42 injured.

Hopefully no loss of life.
I grew up close to Norristown. Took the train (not Norristown st) to Philly with my Dad, good times.
THAT station was closed not long after we moved away though, if I recall correctly.

Perhaps that's what is intended when they reported to hit another train. I'm not familiar at all so I couldn't say.

Yes, hoping there remains zero loss of life.

US hasn't any 'hi speed' trains. But will go off rails around a corner at speed.

Did the 'accident' happen on a curve?

Video,
Talking to a spokesman...at that time around eight people injured.



The AMTRAK Acela HST does use that line, though limited to 80mph or less, so the train could have been a HST.
