here's the first I saw on this:


AP

BOSTON (AP) - Two Green Line trolleys have crashed below downtown Boston, and at least 10 people are reported injured.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo said 1 of the trolleys hit the other from behind Friday evening. The trolleys were traveling west between the Park and Government Center stops.

The link you provided sends me to a news website with an article written on March 25th, 2008. It also mentions the crash occurring on a Tuesday.

I think you might have linked to the wrong page.

A police spokesman for the Boston police have told BNO news that there are not reported deaths,

Thank goodness for that

Well that's unfortunate.

I hope everybody recovers smoothly. Any new details, a news story perhaps?

Here's latest from the Globe: www.boston.com...

Just to tie this story up a bit, It was thought that the driver of the train was txt messaging his Girlfriend when the crash happened,

49 people where injured but none seriously, And none had to attend over night hospital stays,

This could have been so much more tragic, I hope that this learns that driver the biggest lesson of his life..

Just to follow up on the previous post, the driver admitted to police that he was texting at the time and did not see the train in front of him come to a stop.

Sadly this was preventable. Happily no one was killed.

Texting while driving is unbelieveably dangerous. People think this is a video game out here. Or like a cartoon world they are in .I almost wrecked myself a few times and it made me rethink my cell phone addiction . It is more addicting than drugs these cellphones from what I can see . Addiction leads to destruction. The message can wait!!!
