MV accident Allston.

On June 28, 2019 at approximately 2:23AM Transit Police officers assigned to the Central District received a radio call to respond to the vicinity of 353 Cambridge Street in Allston for a motor vehicle on the tracks possibly blocking MBTA Commuter Rail right of way. Upon arrival officers observed a 2003 BMW 530 with substantial damage positioned across the tracks. The Driver of the vehicle, a 26 year old male with a Lynn address, was being treated and prepared for transport by Boston EMS personnel. The driver was ultimately transported to a local area hospital for non life threatening injuries sustained in the accident. A preliminary investigation suggests the driver coming from Franklin Street somehow drove over a curb and through the protective barrier fence and onto the tracks passing over 5 rails of track rendering his vehicle inoperable.

Due to the operator being transported to the hospital TPD officers were unable to complete their investigation. The investigation is still active as to the circumstances surrounding the incident.

media inquiries should be directed to Superintendent Richard Sullivan at
