WALLINGFORD, Pa. (AP) - A man has been hospitalized after a commuter train struck his car in suburban Philadelphia, trapping the man inside.

It happened around 2:40 p.m. Sunday in Nether Providence Township. Authorities say the vehicle got stuck on the tracks and was hit by a regional rail train on SEPTA’s Media/Elwyn Line.

Firefighters had to free the man from his vehicle. Authorities say he was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

Police aren’t identifying the victim, but say he’s in his 90s.

A SEPTA spokeswoman says service was disrupted for more than an hour after the crash, but has been restored.

It’s unclear if any of the train’s passengers were injured.
