SEPTA Train Strikes Man Dangling Onto Market-Frankford Line Tracks

SEPTA riders along the Market-Frankford Line should expect delays Thursday after a train struck a man who had his legs dangling onto the tracks.

The man was either lying on the platform or sitting – his legs hanging over the edge – at the Huntingdon Station shortly before 10 a.m., said SEPTA.

No word yet on how badly the man was hurt.

The transit agency suspended all trains and shuttled passengers shuttled between Allegheny and Berks stations and warned commuters to expect delays. After about 45 minutes, they announced that all trains in both directions would board on the eastbound platforms.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time later you could see officers and SEPTA employees on the platform as the stopped train remained at the station.

Service resumed to normal around 11:15 a.m., said SEPTA.
