UPDATED: Green Line Train Derails in Jamaica Plain; No Injuries Reported

The train derailed about 9:30 am at Huntington and South Huntington avenues.

At about 9:30 a.m. this morning a two-car Green Line E Train derailed on South Huntington between Huntington Avenue and Heath Street. The rear of the second car became derailed. No injuries were reported, according to Joe Pesaturo, a spokesman for the MBTA.

South Huntington was shut down while the MBTA worked to get the train back on the tracks. Traffic was moving again in both directions by 11 a.m. Pestauro said investigators believe a raised rubber seal played a role in the incident. The seal goes around the metal track in the street. It is visible in one of the photos in the photo gallery.
