Following up yesterday's posting regarding a fatality on the R7 Trenton line...

The Inquirer reported in today's editions that a 40-year-old woman from Elverson, Chester County, was struck and killed by an Amtrak train as it pulled into the Trenton Rail Station yesterday morning at around 7:00am. Clocker #624 was the affected train that struck the victim, who witnesses claim jumped off the platform, according to an Amtrak spokesman. The #170 Acela Regional train was reportedly annulled as a result. This corrects earlier information that the incident occured between Levittown and Bristol. While NJT and Amtrak service were reportedly impacted by the incident, there's no word on how SEPTA service was impacted, other than northbound trains being switched over to southbound tracks at Grundy.
