Maintenance vehicle goes off the rails in Dorchester

MBTA maintenance vehicle falls off tracks

Firefighters are on Elm Street in Dorchester, trying to contain any fluids that might be leaking from a T maintenance vehicle that fell off the Red Line around 7 p.m.

A T spokesman reports:

A piece of equipment crews have been using all weekend for track work on the Dorchester branch of the Red Line slid down a hill today. Operator of the equipment had no visible injuries but was taken to the hospital as a precaution. The cause of the accident is under investigation. Buses have been replacing train service in that area all weekend to allow crews to perform the track work.
