Report: Commuter Train Hit by Projectile Just Before Amtrak Train Derailed

(AP) – A Philadelphia commuter train was hit by a projectile about 20 minutes before an Amtrak train derailed a few miles up the track.

A spokeswoman for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority says there’s no indication that the incident is related to the derailment.

SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams says they don’t know what the projectile was. It broke the engineer’s window around 9:25 p.m. Tuesday near SEPTA’s North Philadelphia station. No injuries were reported.

Williams says the Trenton-bound commuter train was stopped and the incident was being investigated when the Amtrak derailment happened about 3 1/2 miles away.

Williams says Amtrak dispatches SEPTA’s Trenton line and was aware of the incident.

Six people were killed and dozens more were injured in Tuesday night’s Amtrak derailment.
