Train Crash in Boston Leaves, 20 People Injured

Several people were injured Tuesday in a slow-speed commuter train collision at Boston's South Station.

The accident happened about 9:15 a.m. when a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority train struck a barrier as it was coming into the station.

The train was entering at a "very slow rate of speed" when it hit the rubber bumper, MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said. He said some people were waiting to exit the rail car and fell after the collision.

Between 15 to 20 people were being treated Tuesday morning for minor injuries, according to fire department spokesman Steve MacDonald, FOX News informs.

The impact knocked Shaw Lively off her feet and left her on all fours. "It was a very sudden stop. The momentum just flew you through the air," Lively said.

Outside South Station on Atlantic Avenue, 10 people held ice packs on their head, knees, elbows, and necks. Medics attended to three people on stretchers, including a man who appeared to be an train conductor, wearing a uniform and holding his hat on his stomach. Firefighters helped fit other riders with neck braces and tied them to backboards.

The engineer operating train number 512 from Worcester will be tested for drugs and alcohol, as is standard, Pesaturo said, Boston Herald reports.
