Emergency crews are at the scene of a fatal accident at a SEPTA station in Haverford Township.

SEPTA officials say a person was struck and killed by a train Tuesday afternoon on the Norristown High Speed Line at Penfield station on Manoa Road and Lawson Avenue. They have not yet revealed the person’s identity.

Shuttle buses are currently operating between 69th Street and Wynnewood Road due to the accident.

SEPTA officials suspect that the incident was a freak accident.

"The preliminary investigation indicates that this was an accident," said SEPTA spokeswoman Kristin Geiger. "We don't have any reason to believe that this incident was a suicide or suspicious in nature."
