Text messaging to blame in Boston trolley collision
A MBTA trolley slammed into the back of another one in downtown Boston last night, injuring 100 and sending 49 to the hospital. In what MBTA officials called an outrage, the driver of the trolley that caused the crash admitted he had been texting his girlfriend at the time and didnít see the red signal in front of him until it was too late. Thankfully none of the injuries were considered life threatening.
