Two SEPTA Market Frankford Line subway trains crashed at the 69th Street Terminal just outside Philadelphia Tuesday morning injuring four people and knocking a few cars off the track.

No one was trapped on the trains. “At this time we are not getting reports of any life-threatening injuries to citizens on the train,” police tweeted.

“As SkyForce10 hovered overhead you could see one of the train cars teetering to one side at a 45-degree angle, its wheels partially dislodged from the body of the train, and at least two other cars partially off the track as crews responded.
SEPTA said the trains were out of service at the time. SEPTA used shuttle buses to get passengers from 69th Street to 63rd Street. Passengers could be seen boarding the buses around 9 a.m.”

West Chester Pike, Market Street and Victory Avenue were impacted, police said.
