Northeast Corridor delays after female struck

 

TRENTON, N.J. — NJ Transit rail riders faced delays for about 90 minutes along part of the Northeast Corridor Thursday.

 

Eastbound trains were running 15 to 30 minutes behind schedule between Trenton and Metropark after a train struck a woman on the tracks.

 

The incident also slowed Amtrak service in the area.

 

NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says it happened shortly after 6 a.m. as the train was pulling out of the yard in Morrisville, Pa. No passengers were aboard.

 

The female was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not known.

 

Service was on or close to schedule by 7:30 a.m., Stessel said.

Yeah, I was wondering that myself - you know, the conditions surrounding the accident. (If it was even accidental, that is.) So far, the reporting has been very vague.
