A Red Line train derailed at Alewife station this afternoon; no injuries. At this hour, passengers are being bused between Harvard and Alewife. No word yet on what went wrong.
And in a related story, Senator Galluccio failed a random alcohol test, and may thereby have derailed his home confinement sentence. (HT billxi.) Galluccio claims that the failure was caused by mouthwash or teeth whitener or something. Nonetheless, WHDH reports that Galluccio must face a probation surrender hearing in January at which, as I understand it, he could conceivably be sent to prison. Video, including a brief interview with Galluccio, is at the WHDH link.
I’ll simply link back to my over-a-month-old call on Senator Galluccio to resign his seat.
