Two of three men who smashed a man with their skateboards outside the Haymarket-station Dunkin' Donuts last night tried to use their boards to outrace pursuing police officers, but failed.
Police say that around 7:25 p.m., the skater boys attacked a 53-year-old man who accidentally bumped into one of them outside the Dunkin' Donuts at the station. They then took off towards the Garden, with police quickly on their tail, thanks to an alert MBTA bus driver who pointed them out.
The victim was taken to Mass. General; his injuries are not considered life threatening, police say.

Around 3:40 p.m. Firefighters quickly doused the fire, in a ground-level closet inside the station, but the T evacuated riders due to the smoke. Trains, however, continued to operate through the station.

Even as the rain supposedly nears the end of its increasingly annoying reign, the waters just keep piling up. From T stations to Rutherford Avenue in Charlestown and Circuit Drive in Franklin Park, which police shut due to flooding to Roslindale Square, which lost power, Bostonians have had enough, enough to slap anybody who might chirpily say "at least it's not snow!" Yeah, that guy.
In Somerville, one motorist had to be rescued from flood waters in Union Square.

Problems on the Red and Green lines mean crankytime for evening T commuters. Christie F. gives us a taste:
35 minutes ago my train pulled out of Lechmere. We still haven't reached Haymarket.
Southbound Red Line service has yet to reach standstill proportions, but that's of little solace to people jammed onto platforms who can't even sardine themselves into trains.
MBTA officials today showed off the first of 60 diesel-hybrid buses that they say will save money on fuel - and give T police real-time surveillance of bus riders.
Around 11:30 a.m., T General Manager Beverly Scott arrived at Haymarket station, where the bus - which still had that new-bus smell - awaited her inspection. She glowingly looked at the new seats - some configured for single riders - declared she loves buses and tried out the driver's seat.
