A Lyft driver was transporting a couple in Boston for a routine ride to the airport. At 4:44 a.m., the car collided with another vehicle at Washington and Herald. The accident caused one of the cars to fall and land roof-first on the Commuter Rail tracks.
When the Lyft driver was driving through an intersection, the other car was traveling too fast and caused a broadside collision. The impact hit the Lyft driver’s car, which went through a fence and down to the train tracks. The driver was suspended upside down, held in place because of his seat belt. The Lyft driver, two passengers, and speeding driver who caused the crash were all taken to the hospital, but no one has serious injuries.
While the vehicle was cleared just before 6:30 in the morning, the crash did cause delay in commuter trains for about an hour that morning.
When negligent drivers aren’t taking the safety of others into account, they can cause serious accidents. It’s more likely to not encounter a lot of traffic around 4:45 in the morning, but this doesn’t mean that traffic rules no longer apply. Speeding and not stopping for intersections caused a reckless accident that could have been fatal.
