Close to 50 people suffered minor injuries when two SEPTA trolleys collided in West Philadelphia today. While a cause has yet to be determined, victims of the SEPTA accident reported that it appeared as though one trolley was speeding.
While SEPTA has yet to confirm what was the cause of this rear-end collision, many are wondering why two trolleys were traveling so close together at all.
SEPTA accidents, like all public transit accidents, are genrally catastrophic and happen for any number of reasons. Defective machinery, speeding, or driver error can cause a crash that claims the lives of dozens. And while no occupants were seriously harmed in this SEPTA accident, that does not necessarily mean injuries will develop at a later time.
