For the second time this month, a person was struck by a SEPTA train on a Regional Rail line in Montgomery County.

The incident occured between Spring Mill and Conshohocken on the R6 Norristown shortly before 22:00 last night, when the victim was struck by outbound #4630 en route to Elm Street. It is unknown whether the victim was a trespasser or simply a wayward passenger, nor were details available about the victim's identity or condition.

On a related note, SEPTA reports that the R6 is suspended the entire length between Center City and Norristown, forcing commuters to transfer to the El and P&W to reach NTC. The offical reason listed is downed wires.
