A SEPTA commuter train struck a sport-utility vehicle on tracks near the Neshaminy Station in Bucks County during rush hour Friday evening. There were no injuries, SEPTA officials said.
The incident occurred about 5:30 p.m. on the West Trenton Line outbound from Center City, when the train, traveling about 25 m.p.h., was rounding a curve between the Trevose and Neshaminy Falls stations and struck an SUV that was on the tracks, officials said.
About 70 passengers from the train were transferred to shuttle buses to their destinations, officials said.
Officials noted that the crash did not occur at a grade crossing, but along the tracks in an area where there have been problems with people riding all-terrain vehicles in the area from adjacent trails.
A SEPTA investigator said there was a report of about five teenagers running from the scene at the time of the crash.
The train, a SEPTA Silverliner IV, sustained some damage but was able to be moved along the tracks.
