Rollover crash in Jamaica Plain pauses some parts of Green Line service

A portion of the Green Line was without service after a rollover car crash in Jamaica Plain on Saturday.

Service was temporarily suspended on the E Line between Heath Street and Brigham Circle due to a rollover crash on South Huntington Ave and Cloburn Street at 5:13 p.m., police and MBTA officials tell Boston 25 News.

The MBTA alerted riders of delays just after 5:30 p.m. Full service resumed just before 7:30 p.m.

A photo shared with Boston 25 showed the blue vehicle flipped onto its roof after it came to rest wheels-up on the MBTA tracks.

One person involved in the crash was evaluated by Boston EMS, a police spokesperson said. Witnesses told Boston 25 News they saw the driver crawl out of the car while it was flipped over.

“I said ‘That’s not a door slamming’ so I came out and then I saw the car flipped over,” said Janet Owens. “But she crawled out and walked away and talked to the ambulance drivers and they took her away.”

A parked car was also smashed in the crash.

Neighbors say they see crashes like this all too often and there was another serious accident like this just a couple of months ago in the same spot.

“I’m not sure if there is something wrong with track or like or we need one more red light over here,” said Naresh Kumar.
