(Boston, MA) -- Three dozen people were hurt when two Green Line trains collided at the Boylston Street station just before noon Thursday.
MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo says one trolley bumped another and the injuries are minor.
The operator of the trolley was a 46-year-old man who has been with the T since 2006. He has no accidents on his record and started his shift at 11 a.m.
As of two p.m. 36 people were reported injured, including both train operators. All were taken to hospitals in the area.
The station was closed for more than two hours. It re-opened around 2:30 p.m., but the MBTA said riders should expect residual delays.
Pesaturo says one trolley was making a stop on the outbound platform and it rear-ended a train that had been parked on the same track. Pesaturo described the crash as "low impact" and there was no derailment.
