Stanley Staco reports it happened around 9:10 p.m. at Washington and East Newton streets.
UPDATE, Friday morning: The MBTA reports the driver was spit on, not pummeled, that one man was caught and that he will be summonsed into court.
I petaled right past that. Must have been just after it happened. Two police cars, two buses, and a T supervisor who was having problems making a U turn to get to the scene. I was wondering what all the fruhaha was about.
The T inspector/supervisor in the SUV some how got stuck while trying to make a U turn. Which is too silly. There are 4 full lanes. How can you not figure out how to successfully pull off a U turn with that much room. Not really stuck, per say, but they were going to have to wait for the traffic light to change. Unless they wanted to back up.
The driver must have 'looked' at them the wrong way.
