SEPTA Train Wreck Hurts 42 Individuals in Upper DarbyForty-two individuals sustained personal injuries in a train wreck involving a SEPTA train on Tuesday morning. The accident in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, occurred around 12:15 pm when a train traveling from the Norristown High Speed Line crashed into an unoccupied train car at the Upper Darby Transportation Center. The train accident caused 41 passengers and the train operator non-life-threatening injuries, and they required hospitalization at eight different hospitals. The train operator was released from the Penn Presbyterian Hospital after treatment.

SEPTA provides commuters and other travelers with convenient modes of transportation, but when a train wreck or bus accident occurs, the results may be devastating, and cause not only personal injuries but potential fatalities as well. Although train accidents may be caused by a negligent train operator, an accident may also occur due to faulty brakes or poor vehicle maintenance.
