CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. (AP) - Transportation officials say service was suspended on a regional rail line in eastern Pennsylvania after a woman was hit and killed by a train.

A spokesman for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority says the unidentified woman was hit near the Spring Mill station in suburban Philadelphia. The train was headed to downtown Philadelphia at around 10 p.m. when it hit the woman in Conshohocken.

Police say the woman was trespassing at the time. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Norristown Regional Rail line was subsequently suspended. Service is expected to return by Monday morning.
