It had been a quiet subway ride for Bryan Marden Saturday morning, his train jammed with passengers dressed for a game at Fenway Park, or like him, an afternoon at Boston’s annual Pride Parade.

But as their Green Line trolley rolled from Kenmore to Fenway, the routine trip was shattered when the train suddenly derailed. The trolley struck the side of a subway tunnel, the impact throwing helpless passengers to the floor, and then came to a sudden stop amid a cloud of dust and debris, according to Marden.

When it was over, 10 people, including the train’s operator, were taken to hospitals for treatment of their injuries. Some of the injuries were serious, authorities said, but they did not give details other than to say none were life threatening.
