According to CNN,

“An Amtrak passenger train crashed into a backhoe on the track Sunday morning near Philadelphia, killing two people and leaving more than 30 injured, officials said. The train was carrying about 341 passengers and seven crew members en route from New York to Savannah, Georgia, Amtrak said. The crash caused the front engine of the train to derail.”

It is unclear why the backhoe was on the tracks near Chester, and Amtrak said “31 people are hospitalized for injuries not considered life-threatening.”

The company announced it suspended service between New York and Philadelphia.
