October 26, 2010 – Joshua Stimson, 22, from Brighton, Massachusetts and a Boston University graduate has died as a result of serious personal injuries sustained when an MBTA trolley struck him early Sunday morning in Boston. Apparently, an inbound D line trolley hit Stimson while he was standing inside a fenced in area of the track between the Longwood and Fenway stations. The accident occurred at around 12:19 a.m. on Sunday.
The MBTA Transit police, Brookline Police and Fire departments, and Boston Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene where they unfortunately pronounced Stimson dead. It is unclear why Stimson was inside the fenced in area.
The accident remains under investigation by the MBTA.
