Earlier today, the third car of a new Orange Line train derailed while switching tracks outside of the work zone at Wellington Station. MBTA personnel safely evacuated all passengers from the train and no injuries have been reported at this time.
Safety is at the forefront of all we do, and we will do all that is necessary to identify and resolve the cause of today’s event to ensure the safety of our riders and employees. A full investigation into this incident is currently underway.
We are inspecting Orange Line infrastructure & trains, & will resume service in the area when determined to be safe. Shuttle buses will run through the end of service.
