SEPTA suspended service on some of its busiest Regional Rail lines for hours after a train struck an unoccupied car on the tracks in Montgomery County Tuesday morning.

The wreck at the rail crossing at Rices Mills Road, between the busy Glenside and Jenkintown stations, left service on the Warminster, Glenside Combined and Lansdale/Doylestown lines suspended until further notice, SEPTA said around 7:40 a.m.

Service on all other lines were delayed up to 45 minutes, SEPTA said.

The crash was cleared and service resumed, with some residual delays up to 30 minutes, around 10 a.m., SEPTA said.

No injuries reported to passengers or crew, SEPTA said.

It wasn't clear how the car wound up on the tracks. There are rail crossing signs and lights at the intersection.
