Newton, Mass. • A Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority bus crashed through a guardrail and fencing on an overpass Sunday, leaving the front of the vehicle hanging over the Massachusetts Pike. Eight people were injured, including the bus operator.
Transit police Lt. Detective Mark Gillespie told the Boston Herald that the bus left the Watertown MBTA yard at 7:20 a.m. About 15 minutes later, while headed to Kenmore Station, the bus steered off the road in Newton, climbed onto a sidewalk and smashed into a guardrail, he said.
Seven passengers and the bus driver were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, MBTA spokeswoman Kelly Smith told The Associated Press. Three other passengers declined medical treatment.
