UPPER DARBY >> A SEPTA operator was critically injured Tuesday morning when a westbound SEPTA Market-Frankfort Line train derailed after it collided with a stopped train at 69th Street Terminal.

.

Seven cars were at least partially derailed, injuring four people  two operators and two passengers  around 8:10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

.

SEPTA Assistant General Manager Scott Sauer said that Train 67 was waiting in queue for the station to clear when the westbound-traveling Train 57 collided with it on the turnaround loop.

.

Four cars from Train 57 derailed, and three cars from Train 67 derailed. Additionally, a third train was impacted when a car from the colliding train derailed onto the adjacent track.

.

The operator of Train 57 was listed in critical condition at Lankenau Hospital.

Sauer said in the preliminary investigation it wasnt clear why the passengers were still aboard. He indicted that the trains were non-revenue trains which means they were not meant for carrying passengers.

The M4 trains that comprise the Market-Frankford Line were built and delivered by ADTranz between 1996 and 1999. They were the first heavy rail cars in SEPTAs fleet that offered electronic designation signs.

.

Tuesday evening, work to re-rail the train cars was put on hold as SEPTA awaited the arrival of the National Transit Safety Board to arrive from Washington D.C. to take over the investigation. Questions that remained unanswered Tuesday evening were why the operator failed to stop in lieu of safety measures that should have prevented such an incident, and why passengers were aboard.

.

Three trains and 18 total cars were impacted in the Tuesday morning collision, further making the already diminished MFL fleet even more strained. Earlier in the month SEPTA announced that a number of M4 trains, which comprise the MFL fleet, showed signs of fractures in the car body bolster beams.
