Septa train collides with van in New Britain

NEW BRITAIN TWP., Pa. - A man and a woman are recovering after a collision with a Septa train in Bucks County.

It happened just before 6:30 p.m. Thursday on Butler Pike in New Britain Township.

Officials say a minivan got stuck between the two railroad crossing gates and was struck and dragged by the Doylestown-bound train.

The passenger was able to escape but the driver was still inside the van when the train hit.

Both were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Septa says it is doing an inspection to make sure the train's equipment was working properly.
