VIDEO: MBTA Releases Footage of Boylston Incident
The MBTA has released surveillance footage of the incident at the Boylston stop in which two trains collided while entering the station. In the video clip, you see a train already parked and accepting passengers. At around the 0:18 mark, the train suddenly lurches forward about six feet as a result of getting rear-ended by the trolley behind it.
It’s obvious in the clip that the collision was a violent one, and not just a light “bump” as the wording of the MBTA’s report might suggest. It’s now clear why three dozen people sustained injuries in the accident.
