Commuters at the Septa station in Lansdale weighed in about the Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia that took the lives of eight passengers aboard train 1-88 Tuesday night. Greg, from Lansdale, was waiting for a train bound for Wilmington. He says the cause of the fatal crash seems obvious.
“That driver was just going at a high rate of speed and doing what he was supposed to do.”
Paul Crookston is a news intern at a television station in Philadelphia. He was at the Lansdale station waiting for a train to take him into center city.
“Yeah, big deal, first day of the internship was when it happened, so all of having a crazy start to things, but as far as the trains, I’d say I trust the trains, accidents happen. It’s not the sort of thing that I freak out about.”
