Elderly woman killed by Red Line train
An elderly woman was killed by a Red Line train in Cambridge on Sunday night.
The Brockton woman was hit and pinned under the train at the Kendall/MIT stop, where she was waiting with her family. But how she ended up on the tracks is still a mystery, as authorities say she did not fall and was not pushed. They also say the situation was not a suicide.
A deputy with the Cambridge Fire Department told FOX 25 that the woman was under the train and still alive when they arrived as they removed her from the tracks. She was alert and conscious when she was brought to Massachusetts General Hospital, but later died, they added.
Red Line service was suspended temporarily, but is back to normal.
This is the second time this month that a person was killed by an MBTA train.
