A commuter train slammed into a parked train car at a station near Philadelphia, injuring 42 passengers early on Tuesday, according to train officials. The train hit the vacant parked car at the 69th Street terminal in Upper Darby, 10 miles west of Philadelphia, around 12:15 am EDT as it pulled into the station, Heather Redfern, a spokeswoman for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, said on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

“The injuries appeared to be non-life threatening for all passengers and the operator,” Redfern said. “It’s all under investigation at this point.” The train’s conductor was among the injured. In February, four people were injured when a train rear-ended another near the 69th Street Terminal.
