A little earlier

I think it was a little earlier - I catch my bus right across Cambridge Street there and unexpectedly walked through the crash scene at about 7:20. I couldn't tell which vehicles had crashed - there was a big truck stopped in the opposite direction and I think it may have sideswiped both of the cars.

Hardy har har.

Seriously: #1: That's a Crystal Transport bus - a private bus company, not the T. Probably headed to one of the college shuttle bus routes - I see two or three of them coming through there around that time every morning. #2: It wasn't part of the crash, it was passing through the scene. I haven't gotten any T alerts, so I guess the 66 and 64 have been able to keep going through there as well. The bus I caught at 7:25 or so wasn't sure she was going to be able to get through, but the truck (the one I think may have hit the cars) moved off to the side and cleared the lane.
