On October 26th, 2012 at approximately 10:20 PM Transit Police officers assigned to Area 3 received a radio call for a MBTA bus vs. motor vehicle accident in Quincy, MA. at the intersection of Water and Franklin Streets. Upon arrival officers interviewed both the MBTA operator as well as the private vehicle operator.

Fortunately there were no reported injuries, the MBTA bus sustained minor damage and the Honda Civic had its hood folded up as a result of the impact. Officers criminally cited the operator of the Honda Civic, Elias Enriques, 24 of Dorchester, MA., for being a Unlicensed Operator. Enriques will be summoned to appear in Quincy District Court.
