WILMINGTON, Mass. — Authorities say a commuter train with more than 100 passengers on board derailed in Massachusetts during the latest winter storm to hit the region, but no one was hurt.
A spokesman for Keolis Commuter Services, which runs the system for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, says the train headed to Boston derailed in Wilmington at about 6:30 a.m. Thursday.
The “very low-speed” derailment is under investigation to determine if it was weather-related.
The National Weather Service reports that Wilmington got more than 10 inches of snow.
The spokesman says crews had to clear about 30 fallen tree limbs from tracks as a result of the storm, and seven trains were damaged and repaired.
There are multiple storm-related delays on the MBTA’s commuter rail, light rail and bus lines.
