SEPTA Purchasing New Trains From China; Man Assaults SEPTA Driver; Girls Light Victim's Hair On Fire

SEPTA Officials are set to meet on Thursday, and it is expected that they are going to approve a new plan to purchase new rail cars for its Regional Rail lines. The plan would be to purchase 45 bi-level rail cars from CRRC, which is a subsidiary of a Chinese manufacturer. SEPTA Officials stated that they are also going to work with the Edison Welding Institute to ensure the work on the cars is done correctly. The rail cars are expected to be delivered to SEPTA beginning in the Fall of 2019. Some SEPTA workers are upset with the decision to outsource to China because Hyundai Rotem, which is a rail car manufacturing company in Philadelphia, will be losing their business.

A Philadelphia man has now been placed into police custody after assaulting a SEPTA bus driver. The incident took place on Tuesday at the 69th Street Transportation Center in Upper Darby at around 2:20 am. Police say that 48-year-old Kevin White was being loud and causing a disturbance on the bus ride. He later approached the bus driver to try and take his picture and the driver tried to push him away. This is when White began to punch the driver, as well as hitting him with a stick. The bus driver was able to get him off of the bus and SEPTA police were able to grab the man while he was in the bus terminal. White has been charged with several offenses including assault and public drunkenness. White is currently being held at a Delaware County Prison.

Three Philadelphia girls have been placed into police custody after reportedly setting another girl's hair on fire. The incident took place near 46th and Market Streets in West Philadelphia at around 6:50 pm on Wednesday. Officials say that the three girls had gotten into a fight with the victim. She tried to run away and seek help in a SEPTA station. That is when the girls continued to assault her and ended up lighting her hair on fire. The three girls tried to get away, but were quickly apprehended by SEPTA Police. Luckily the victim sustained no injuries from the fight. It is still unclear what started the fight.
