Police Stop Suicide on Tracks

November 16, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Upper Moreland and Abington police stopped a young Willow Grove man who tried to kill himself Friday by parking his car on a SEPTA rail line.

The incident occured minutes before 1 p.m. where the commuter train tracks cross Moreland Road in the Willow Grove section of Upper Moreland.

The Glenside News Globe Times Chronicle reported that the 18-year-old male parked the car on the tracks and locked his doors, when police arrived they tried to get the man out of the car but their early efforts failed.

Police say that they informed SEPTA of the inccident and then used force to get the man from the car.

The paper reports that the man who police would not name was taken for evaluation.

The Warminster line which runs on the tracks was not delayed.
