Trolley and car collide in West Philadelphia

For the second time in two days, a SEPTA trolley got into a wreck.

The latest collision occurred about 12:25 p.m. today on Woodland Avenue near 48th, when the Route 11 trolley heading west on Woodland struck a Mercury Mountaineer traveling on 48th Street, said SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch. It's unclear which driver had the right-of-way. Fourteen people reported injuries - eight trolley passengers, three people in the car and another three outside the trolley, Busch said. It's unclear how the people outside the trolley were injured. All injuries reportedly are minor.

Yesterday, two trolleys collided in at the underground Juniper station at 13th and Market streets about 11 a.m. Five people reported injuries in that low-speed "tapping," according to SEPTA.
