A teenager was hit by an Amtrak train Saturday afternoon near the Malvern station while waiting for a SEPTA Regional Rail train into Center City to go to the Made in America festival, authorities and witnesses said.
The condition of the 16-year-old boy, who was not identified, remained unknown at 2:30 p.m., but witnesses said he was conscious as an ambulance took him to a nearby hospital. The incident happened about 12:40 p.m., SEPTA officials said.
It is initially believed that the boy suffered a glancing blow from the train.

A large crowd reportedly gathered around the train station, which is along Paoli-Thorndale line, and authorities said the large turnout was due to the all-day concert downtown.
On Sunday, a different Amtrak train hit a pedestrian at the Torresdale Station.
CORRECTION: This story has been updated after SEPTA clarified that the boy was struck by an Amtrak train, not a Regional Rail train.
