KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (AP) - A Chicago-bound freight train has reportedly struck and killed two people in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Montgomery County emergency dispatchers said Saturday that they received a report that a Norfolk Southern train had struck and killed two pedestrians around 7:30 a.m.
Dispatchers say Valley Forge park rangers were investigating, but park rangers didn't immediately respond to a telephone message.
Norfolk Southern spokesman Dave Pidgeon says he doesn't know how fast the westbound train was traveling when it struck the pedestrians, but says the track speed is 50 miles per hour.
Pidgeon says he doesn't know the pedestrians' condition. He says the train's two crew members weren't hurt.
