NHSL Accident

Post by JeffK » Thu Mar 29, 2018 7:57 pm

Channel 6 reports an accident occurred on the NHSL this afternoon when a car crashed into a pole near County Line Road: http://6abc.com/septa-high-speed-line-t ... d/3279784/. I was on Montgomery Avenue around 5:30 and saw police, fire, and EMT personnel at Matsonford Road which is one of the nearest stations with vehicle access. At that time KYW Radio's traffic report said that the accident was possibly caused by "debris" on the rails, which could be anything from a fallen branch to vandalism.

Interestingly (tellingly?), as of this posting (20:55) SEPTA's website has no information about the accident.
Requiem for it's/its, your/you're, than/then, less/fewer. They were once such nice words with such different meanings...
