SEPTA experiencing Regional Rail delays after fatality on tracks

SEPTA's Regional Rail service is facing multiple delays Thursday evening in response to a fatality on the tracks earlier in the afternoon. 

SEPTA officials said the incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. in the vicinity of Fern Rock Station, where a man in his sixties was fatally struck by an outbound train heading to Warminster. 

The incident forced the temporary suspension of SEPTA's Warminster, Doylestown and West Trenton lines, which continue to experience delays of up to an hour or more.

All other lines could experience delays of up to 15 minutes.
