MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Amtrak has canceled some service to and from Boston after a train struck a vehicle on the tracks.
The temporary track closure is affecting service at South Station, Back Bay Station and Route 128 Station on Monday morning.
Late Sunday, an Amtrak train heading from Washington, D.C., to Boston hit a vehicle in Mansfield, about 20 miles southwest of Boston. None of the 180 passengers or crew was injured. The condition of the people in the truck wasn't immediately clear.
Amtrak says it will take several hours "to remove the damaged rail equipment and to make any needed repairs to railroad property."
Delays were expected on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's Providence and Stoughton line.
