Bryn Mawr Amtrak Train Hits, Kills Person on Tracks

Inbound service was suspended along SEPTA's Paoli/Thorndale Regional Rail after an Amtrak train struck and killed a person on the tracks near the Bryn Mawr station.

The incident occured around 4 p.m. when an Amtrak train that was out of service heading from Harrisburg to Philadelphia came into contact with a person 10 miles west of Philadelphia at the Bryn Mawr interlocking.

Two SEPTA trains were being held on the line at Villanova and Rosemont Stations. One track had returned to service while the investigation continued. 

SEPTA operated shuttle busses to help stuck riders.

Amtrak and SEPTA passengers could expect residual service delays through the evening rush.
