TREVOSE (AP) – A sport utility vehicle abandoned on railroad tracks was struck by a regional commuter train in suburban Philadelphia.

It happened around 6 p.m. Friday between the Neshaminy Falls and Trevose stations in Bucks County.

SEPTA said there were no injuries reported to passengers or crew.

Investigators at the scene were told that a group of teenagers were spotted running from the scene at the time of the accident.
