Woman killed by Amtrak train in Phila.

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.
