Tree falls on commuter train in suburban Philly

WALLINGFORD, Pa. (AP) — Transit officials in suburban Philadelphia say a tree fell on a commuter train, but no one was hurt.

It happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday in Wallingford on the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s Media-Elwyn line. Officials say the train was heading toward Philadelphia when the tree fell.

Service had to be stopped on the line for several hours while workers removed the tree.

Electrical connectors on the roof of the train were damaged, but it’s back in service Thursday.

There were four SEPTA workers on the train at the time, but no one was hurt.
