A bus crash last week near Boston’s Copley Place injured a 54-year-old pedestrian. According to a press release issued by the Suffolk district attorney’s office, the MBTA bus accident occurred just after midnight near the intersection of Ring Road and Huntington Avenue.
The Route 9 bus was headed west on Huntington Avenue and did not have any passengers at the time of the bus crash. As of Friday, the pedestrian was still in the intensive care unit at Boston Medical Center.
The bus driver will be tested for drug or alcohol impairment in accordance with the MBTA’s standard policy, but investigators say he did not show any signs of impairment following the collision.
