On Wednesday evening, a Green Line train derailed at 5:50pm, according to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. Fortunately, the train was not in service and neither of the two crew members onboard were injured. The MBTA accident occurred as the inbound trolley was looping to go outbound.
Service on the Green Line was suspended between Government Center and North Station, but was expected to resume by early Thursday morning. This marks the second Green Line accident near Government Center this year. An earlier subway accident in May injured dozens of people and caused millions of dollars in damage.
Authorities are investigating what caused the trolley to derail.
