Norristown High Speed Line train hits…a car?!

This morning, NHSL trains had to single track between West Overbrook – I mean, “Township Line Road” – and Radnor because an N5 hit a car that was parked on the tracks, resulting in at 25 passengers being injured.  At 4:25 this morning, Brian Manning of Haverford, while intoxicated, accidentally turned into the substation access road near Beechwood-Brookling Station with his Toyota off of Karakung Drive and got stuck on the tracks. While calling his wife and AAA, the first Norristown-bound train of the day slammed into the car.  Fortunately, the driver was not in the car and therefore wasn’t injured.

It’s not yet clear which railcar was affected.
