MBTA

BOSTON — Service on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Fairmount line for the morning commute today (Wednesday, April 10) has been cancelled as the result of a Tuesday night collision and derailment of two MBTA trains near Boston’s South Station.

No injuries were reported when a Fairmount Line train collided with an out-of-service train at low speed, derailing three cars, the Boston Globe reports. Work by the MBTA and its contract operator, Keolis Commuter Service, to rerail the cars, clean up, and inspect the accident site was not completed.

Bus service was replacing commuter trains this morning. The status of service for the afternoon commute was not immediately available. Check the MBTA website for more information.
