PHILADELPHIA — A regional rail spokeswoman says the driver of a train that crashed into a parked train at a suburban Philadelphia terminal has been treated at a hospital and released.

Agency spokeswoman Heather Redfern says 42 people were injured in the Tuesday morning crash at the 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby. She says none of the injuries are life threatening.

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority officials are investigating the cause.

The inbound Norristown High Speed train crashed into an unoccupied, parked train at the 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday.
