Green Line service restored after train derails, injures 10

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Officials worked overnight to remove a derailed train from the D branch of the MBTA's Green Line in time for the Tuesday morning commute.

Normal service was restored just after 5 a.m. Tuesday, one day after a train derailed just west of Kenmore Station.

Boston EMS officials say 10 people were transported to the hospital after the derailment Monday afternoon. Most were treated for neck and back injuries.

Passengers were walked off of the train. The train's driver was treated and released, MBTA Spokesperson Joe Pesaturo said.

Pesaturo told FOX 25 the first car of a two-car D train derailed and struck a wall. The train was bound for Riverside at the time of the derailment.

Transit Police said workers needed to move the derailed trolley, have structural engineers assess the wall, and restore power to the tracks.

There is currently no word on what caused the derailment.
