BOSTON -

An MBTA Green Line train derailed in Boston, sending 10 people to hospitals with minor injuries.

A spokeswoman for the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority said the outbound train went off the track underground and struck a wall shortly after 12:20 p.m. Monday. The cause of the crash is being investigated. It occurred at the intersection of two branches of the Green Line just west of Kenmore Station, which is near Fenway Park.

Boston emergency crews reported at least seven people, including the train's driver, complained of back pain. All passengers walked off the train unassisted. Some of the injured were on a following train that braked to avoid the crash.

Service on parts of the affected branches wasn't expected to resume Monday. Shuttle buses were running to accommodate commuters.
