Green Line train derailment in Boston, 10 people injured


An official estimated that the train was carrying 60 to 70 passengers. At least 10 people, including the driver of the train, were reported injured. Many of them had back pain. They were transported to local hospitals even though all reported injuries were minor. Some of the injured people were on a second trolley that stopped to avoid hitting the derailed train. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
The passengers were escorted out of the tunnel in a short time after the accident, according to the MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo. Due to the accident, as a necessary alternative, buses transported passengers during all day, replacing the Line C trains from Kenmore to St.Morris Street Station and the Line D trains from Kenmore to Fenway.
The Green Line is a light rail system run by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority in the Boston metropolitan area, being the oldest Boston subway line and the most heavily-used light rail line in the country.
