A "fender bump'' between two MBTA trolleys in the Boylston Street Green Line station left the driver of one trolley shaken but caused no major injuries or extended delays, according to the MBTA and Boston fire officials.
The incident took place shortly after 9 a.m. and triggered a significant public safety response. Boston Deputy Fire Chief Richard DiBenedetto called the incident a "fender bump.'' He said no passengers needed transport to the hospital. "The driver was a little shaken up, but that's about it,'' he said.
DiBenedetto said the trolleys involved were moved off the main tracks and that full Green Line service was restored.
MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo called the incident a very low-speed rear-end collision and said that there were no injuries.
Full service has resumed, Pesaturo said.
