BOSTON (AP) — Officials say a 39-year-old Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority inspector is in the hospital after she was dragged a short distance by a Green Line trolley.
An MBTA spokesman tells the Boston Globe the inspector was investigating a power issue on a train at the Harvard Avenue T stop when she became trapped between a fence and the inbound and outbound tracks.
He says it is unclear if she was dragged by one car or pushed by the other. The accident happened after she reconnected them.
The cause is under investigation.
He says she was conscious and alert when she was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
The worker, of Mattapan, has not been identified, but officials say she has worked for the MBTA for almost nine years.
