MBTA Operator Negligence Causes Dozens of Rider Injuries in Green Line Tunnel Crash

On May 8, 2009, two MBTA Green Line trolleys collided in the tunnel near Park Street Station in Boston. Dozens of passengers were injured including evening commuters and families headed to the Red Sox game. It appears that the accident was caused by the fact that the operator was sending a text message on his cell phone instead of paying attention to his job. His apparent recklessness caused almost fifty people to be injured.

If you were one of the victims of this MBTA accident, we urge you to seek immediate legal assistance. Our firm has decades of experience handling MBTA and other train and bus accident cases. For example, the lawyers at Breakstone, White & Gluck

MBTA drivers are forbidden to use cell phones or to text while driving. The MBTA will certainly be held liable for the injuries sustained by the passengers on the trains. The T is vicariously liable for the negligence of its operators, and operator negligence seems extremely clear in this case.
