Transit Police say a driver trying to make a left turn ahead of a trolley was cited for a collision last night that left his car with damage , sent a couple of people to the hospital for observation but left the trolley unscathed.
According to a Transit Police report, the man was driving outbound on Comm. Ave. shortly before 8 p.m. when he tried turning left onto Pleasant Street, across the Green Line tracks.
There is no signal at the intersection, but it does have "Yield to Trolley" signs, so the driver was issued a citation for failing to yield at a yield sign. The force of the impact caused his air bags to deploy and his car was towed from the scene.
According to police, the trolley driver reported being "shaken up" and was taken to St. Elizabeth's, as was a trolley passenger who reported a headache. Another trolley passenger reported feeling dizzy but was not taken to the hospital.
