No injuries in latest Green Line vs. car collision

A vehicle “came in contact with a trolley” around 4 p.m. Sunday, according to an MBTA spokesperson.

The Green Line’s E Branch saw disrupted service and delays on Sunday afternoon following a traffic accident near the Riverway station, according to the MBTA.

A vehicle “came in contact with a trolley” around 4 p.m., according to MBTA spokesperson Joe Pesaturo. Green Line supervisors, transit police, and Boston EMS responded to the scene and reported no injuries.

E branch service was temporarily suspended between Brigham Circle and Heath Street, though Route 39 buses accommodated riders, Pesaturo said. Regularly scheduled service resumed around 4:30 p.m.

The trolley involved in the crash was taken out of service, he said. 


Sunday’s incident came just days after a collision between a car and a trolley on the Green Line’s B Branch temporarily brought service to a halt near the Boston University Bridge.
