Car crashes, hangs over edge of parking garage
The MBTA tweeted that the station was temporarily closed as crews assess the damage.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A crash on the top floor of a Boston area parking garage on Saturday left a car hanging precariously off the edge and injured at least one, according to firefighters.
The Cambridge Fire Department in a tweet at about 2:15 p.m. said it was conducting a technical rescue at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Alewife garage.
The fire department posted a photo of a car with heavy front-end damage hanging over the edge of the garage that has nearly 2,500 parking spaces.
“MBTA Alewife station will remain CLOSED pending structural & safety evaluation,” the fire department tweeted, along with a photo of glass and debris covering the floor of what is normally a busy concourse.
The MBTA tweeted that the station is temporarily closed as crews assess the damage.
Shuttle buses were replacing Red Line service between Davis and Alewife stations.
