MBTA employee hit by Green Line trolley
By Globe Staff
Service on the Green Line was temporarily suspended this morning after an MBTA employee was hit by a trolley.
The employee was struck at about 10:20 a.m. about 350 feet west of Reservoir Station, near the border between Brookline and Boston. The employee was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with an injury to his left arm, said Joe Pesaturo, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
Pesaturo said the injured man was 46-year-old supervisor who was looking into a report of treecutting activity along the right of way when he was struck by an outbound trolley.
Service on the D branch between the Reservoir and Newton Highlands stations was temporarily suspended. Shortly before noon, the MBTA announced that service had been restored.
