Over 40 passengers hurt in Philadelphia train crash

42 train passengers were injured when a commuter train crashed into a parked train car outside Philadelphia early Tuesday. None of the injuries were life-threatening, according to the officials.

The collision happened just after midnight at the 69th Street Terminal Center in Upper Darby, Pa., about 10 miles west of Philadelphia, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority spokeswoman Heather Redfern said.

The Norristown High Speed Line train was pulling into the station when it hit a second, unoccupied train car. The operator was among those injured, she said.

“The injuries appeared to be non-life threatening for all passengers and the operator,” Redfern said. “It’s all under investigation at this point.”
