BOSTON — Multiple people were injured late Friday when two streetcars collided on Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Ashmont–Mattapan High Speed Line near Cedar Grove.

According to local media, the collision happened shortly after 3 p.m. near the Cedar Grove station. At least a dozen passengers were injured, according to Boston EMS. Local media report that most of the injuries were minor and that passengers were able to walk away from the scene. Transit police are looking into what caused the wreck. MBTA officials say buses will provide service on the Ashmont-Mattapan route until further notice.

The Ashmont–Mattapan High Speed Line is a 2.6-mile route at the end of the Red Line and is unique in that it’s the last line in Boston to use historic PCCs.
