Trolley Car Collision Injures 32 In Boston

Boston Globe

A crushing rear-end collision between two trolley cars Monday injured 32 people, plunging a subway station into subterranean chaos and launching a massive rescue operation.

The crash occurred around 9:40 a.m., when a train with two cars plowed into the back of a single-car train that had stopped. The impact crumpled the front end of the moving trolley. Its driver was trapped for an hour before she was freed by firefighters.
