Bound to happen. Those trolleys are so aggressive these days, speeding, cutting other cars off...

Have the right of way and do not need a drivers license to perform their duties. I believe the T has a policy requiring drivers to have a license but it is not required by the General Laws.

I arrived just about the same time as the Fire Department. Given the orientation of the pick-up and the fact that the bus was clearly going at a good clip when it stopped (it was angled across the intersection slightly) I'm guessing that it was the train which was running the light and t-boned the pick-up.

Inbound train managed to squeeze by, outbound Comm Ave was cut off, and there was a trickle of traffic still working around the accident on Washington when I gave up on all hope of getting anywhere soon and went back home. The helicopters hovered for about 30-40 minutes.
