Someone within the first responder community let us know about an accident involving a train striking something near the Spring Mill Train Station. When we pulled up the county’s alert system, we saw an incident at Station Avenue and the Schuylkill River Trail disappear and a similar sounding one pop-up just up the track at Washington Street at Cherry Street. We are not sure if its the same incident, but one literally replaced the other on our screen. Please note that we described it as “something” because the first responder used the word “subject” and the alert system designated it a “vehicle accident”.
The first responder didn’t know how serious it was yet and SEPTA doesn’t have an alert as of 10:16 p.m. for the Manayunk/Norristown Line.
Please note if you follow the above link to the county’s alert system, if the incident has been cleared, it will no longer be listed.
We will provide an update once we learn more.
