SEPTA has resumed service on its Paoli-Thorndale Regional Rail line after an Amtrak train struck and killed a person Wednesday morning on the Main Line.

Information about the victim was not immediately revealed.

Amtrak officials said the incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. near SEPTA's Wynnewood Station. A train on its way from Harrisburg to New York struck the person, who was trespassing on the tracks, according to a spokeswoman.
