A 21-year-old Boston College student who was hit by an MBTA trolley in November is improving, according to a spokesperson for Boston College. BC junior Michael Cordo, of Sudbury, was treated for head trauma at Brigham and Women’s Hospital after the trolley accident.
The MBTA has confirmed that the driver of the rear trolley car that was involved with the accident tested positive in a drug and alcohol test and has been suspended, but it would not confirm if the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The MBTA maintains that it has a strict zero-tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol use in its drivers.
Another MBTA accident that occurred on November 14 left seven people injured. Both MBTA accidents are under investigation, which can take between four and six months.
