The MBTA has reported a fatality involving a motorcycle crash which occurred this morning in Roxbury. The accident, which is still under investigation by the Boston police, occurred when a RIDE van was stopped at the corner of Park Lane and Walnut Avenue. The motorcyclist apparently collided with the van at about 9:40 a.m., according to MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo.
The individual was later pronounced dead after being rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Fortunately, the van was not carrying any passengers at the time of the collision and the driver was uninjured. No further information is available at the moment.
