Amtrak trains delayed in Philly after trespasser struck on tracks in Delaware

SEPTA's Regional Rail service also impacted south of Wilmington

Amtrak trains traveling through Delaware are operating on delays due to a person being struck and killed on Wednesday afternoon.

Amtrak temporarily halted service between Wilmington and Newark shortly after 4 p.m. after Amtrak Train 1194 struck a trespasser on the tracks south of Wilmington in New Castle County, according to multiple media reports.

It restored service shortly before 5 p.m. But trains are operating at a reduced speed, as only one of three tracks in that area is open. Amtrak advised riders that they may experience congestion-related delays in both directions.

SEPTA has suspended all Regional Rail service running south of Wilmington but is shuttling passengers via bus between Wilmington and Newark.
