Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

PHILADEL­PHIA » Po­lice say no in­juries have been re­ported from what they are call­ing a “mi­nor” de­rail­ment of a com­muter train in Philadel­phia.

Of­fi­cials said about 30 peo­ple were aboard the South­east­ern Penn­syl­va­nia Trans­porta­tion Author­ity train when it de­railed on the Mar­ketFrank­ford el­e­vated line just be­fore 11 a.m. Satur­day.

SEPTA spokesman An­drew Busch said the train was ap­proach­ing the Spring Gar­den sta­tion near the Delaware River at what he called “very low” speed when there was some kind of equip­ment prob­lem. One of the cars par­tially came off the rails.

He said he had been told that no se­ri­ous in­juries had been re­ported. Po­lice called it a “mi­nor train de­rail­ment” and said there were no in­juries and no dam­age to the train.
