On Tuesday morning, a SEPTA train accident in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, left 42 individuals with a range of personal injuries. The SEPTA train accident occurred around 12:15 am when a train coming from the Norristown High Speed Line hit an unoccupied train car at the Upper Darby Transportation Center. Forty-one passengers and the train operator sustained non-life-threatening injuries and received treatment at eight local hospitals. The train operator, who was treated at the Penn Presbyterian Hospital, was discharged.
SEPTA trains provide reliable, convenient, and economical transportation to millions of commuters and visitors in the Delaware Valley. Unfortunately, when a train accident occurs, it could mean that train occupants may incur personal injuries, which may adversely affect their quality of life, or even cause fatalities for them. In some cases, the train operator may be at fault, but defective brakes or other issues may cause train accidents, too.
