FOLCROFT, Pa. - October 5, 2009 Amtrak spokesman Steve Kulm says it happened Monday afternoon in
the Philadelphia suburb of Folcroft. No one on the train was
injured but the New York-to-Washington train with 150 passengers
was delayed by more than an hour while police investigated. It was
not immediately clear why the woman was on the tracks.
Kulm says Acela trains go as fast as 110 mph in the area where
the woman was struck.
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority suspended
service on the R2 commuter line due to the police activity, but
service was restored later Monday afternoon.
