Feds join investigation into Green Line crash

The National Transportation Safety Board announced this morning it "is investigating the July 30, 2021, collision of two Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) light rail trains on MBTA's Green Line near Boston, Massachusetts."

Prediction: The NTSB will issue a report that concludes the MBTA needs to equip the Green Line with a "positive train control system," just like it does after every Green Line collision.
