At least 33 passengers were injured after two trains collided at high speed at the 69th Street Terminal in Philadelphia. A packed out carriage traveling at high-speed crashed into the back of a unoccupied parked train at the station in the suburban US town of Upper Darby.
All 33 people aboard the SEPTA train were inured after the collision at around 12:15am (local time). Thomas Micozzie, mayor of Upper Darby, said that four passengers who were seriously injured have been taken to hospital. It is not yet clear what caused the crash, which is under investigation.
One shaken passenger described bloody scenes after the train smash. He said: “There was blood everywhere. There was this driver all banged up and there was this one girl bleeding out of her face pretty bad.”
