Blue Line Train Collides With Maintenance Truck

BOSTON (AP) — Officials say a subway train and a track maintenance truck collided in East Boston, but there were no injuries.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo says the driver of the truck was checked out at a hospital as a precaution.

He says about 40 riders were on the Blue Line train when the collision occurred above ground at 1:15 a.m. Thursday.

The spokesman says the collision is still under investigation and he didn’t release any details on how it occurred.

He says the train was able to continue on its journey shortly after the incident, and the accident didn’t affect any train traffic.
