Between yesterday and this morning, SEPTA vehicles have been in some thick situations, including a Route 23 bus that was rear-ended by a vehicle that injured 5 people, a man hit and seriously injured by a 15 trolley, and a man hit while waiting for the train by a Lansdale-Doylestown regional rail train.
We are so glad local artist Ronnie Ribant took the effort to create this paper model commemorating the oh-so-unfortunate accident between a SEPTA bus and Monk’s Cafe.
One question comes to mind - was it a Route 33 bus, as depicted in the paper model (photos from the crash) that was on a severe detour at 2:15 am on a Tuesday? It was probably a Route 2 bus that was actually running on time.
A car traveling eastbound entered the trolley tunnel at 40th and Baltimore on Thursday morning at 11:30 a.m. and caused a temporary disruption of service when routes 10, 11, 13, 34 and 36 were put on diversion, according to SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch. …
The crazy thing is that this happens kind of frequently.
“It’s not that uncommon,” said police spokesperson Tanya Little.
