Human error could be to blame for Green Line crash – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) – Human error may have been a leading factor in a Green Line crash last week that injured four people, sources tell 7NEWS.

As the station previously reported, services between Park Street and Union Square stations were halted after two trains traveling out of different tunnels grazed each other near the government center last week. Both trains derailed.

Four people who were taken to a nearby hospital are said to have all suffered minor injuries, Boston EMS said.

One of the trains had about 25 passengers on board while the other was empty, according to the T.

There is no evidence of infrastructure problems as the cause of the crash.

The MBTA tries to fix such problems in the future and recently announced a new project called the Green Line Protection System. MBTA is scheduled to begin work on the project next month. The goal is to change equipment to avoid collisions between trains and add red light protection and speed enforcement. This system is expected to be fully installed by 2023.
