9:37 am
information on this. we just received a news release from the mbta within the last ten minutes talking about the situation and happened at 6:00 this morning. again, inbound red line train is without a operator and a serious situation there are people on the train and hearing from people tweeting there was another inbound train coming so that train had to speed up to miss this other train. >> julie: i spend six hours every morning watching the "t's" website and trying to keep track of delays, and we often have delays on variety of lines because of tech issues, weather, whatever it maybe, so when this happened, first it started with minor delay, then went to moderate red line delay and all of a sudden serious red line delay and led the traffic reports with the noise but didn't have the details about exactly what we were seeing such issues except they were calling it a disabled train and that's why we were seeing significant delays.
9:38 am
obviously tweeting about this. want to read a line in this news release that we are -- we just received. that train made no station stops, proceeded north just past north quincy station when mbta operators personnel depowered the third rail. this is a serious situation when you hear it because there are a lot of factors. dangers behind this. >> julie: we started getting tips about an hour ago, besides those tweeting about it saying hey, seems like something might be up here more than disabled train, then like you just said in news release, received confirmation from the mbta, in fact, the train was on the tracks running without an operator and they be someone may have tampered with the controls that allow it to run. >> daniel: read a statement from the general manager from the mbta. frank depaula, passenger safety is highest priority for the mbta and this highly troubling incident is under investigation
9:39 am
so they are calling this a highly troubling incident. and dangerous one. >> julie: and this is after yesterday we had a deadly incident on the red line as well so that was already something we were keeping track of and then to have this take whole other turn, we just received this news release, so we are working to confirm more details for you, and we will let you know as soon as we learn anything else. let's check in with sarah. >> sarah: -- >> julie: look at maps things target to look better on 93 south. down to 45 minutes. it has been hovering around the hour mark all morning plus even more than that in the thick of the morning commute. so things starting to look a little bit better as far as the volume is concerned. now here is sarah with the forecast. >> sarah: risk of showers moving on out and nantucket getting wet right now. high temperatures across new england well above the average 40s to the north, 50 to 60

9:43 am
>> daniel: that's right. they tell us inbound red line train left the braintree station without an operator. that train made no stops and got just past north quincy station when the mbta depowered the line causing that train to stop. now, the "t" says it is investigating initial reports that safety device in train's cab may have been tampered with. we are going to go right now to fox25's catherine parrotta who's joining us with information. catherine, what are you hearing. >> catherine: arrived here at jfk umass and look over here it appears to be business as usual, although it is certainly not the case here a little while ago and passengers from the red line train were actually taken after the train was able to be stopped and mbta personnel boarded and this is where they brought the train. here is information they have right now, newly released by the mbta and there's an
9:44 am
incident underway, serious incident on red line train and the red line train started off with braintree station after 6:00 this morning and then proceeded to travel to the north quincy station without an operator. the train made no stops during all of this. mbta depowered the third rail, personnel it took to jfk so passengers could get off the train. no passengers were injured. train was actually taken out of service though and now mbta personnel they are looking into device in the train's cab was tampered with, but again, at this point, an investigation still underway. i have to tell you as this was unfolding passengers aboarded red line train, they are actually tweeting about some of this and pulled up some of the tweets here and one person asking twitter to the mbta, why isn't the red line train stopping anywhere, boarded at braintree, confused passengers and mbta actually responding to the person at the time. hello, our apologies for the confusion. red line supervisors
9:45 am
so again, a lot of passengers very confused while this is happening, want to show what was going on and mbta saying that nobody was injured in all of this fortunately but probably very serious situation for some people on board. investigation ongoing right now, but you could see it appears to be business as usual at least here at jfk. we also went to the north quincy stop within the past hour. business as usual there right now as well. so now we wait to find out what sort of information will emerge about exactly what happened. for now live at jfk stop, catherine parrotta, back over to you guys. >> julie: catherine, just to be clear, these people boarded train as usual to go to work and school and it didn't stop and then they were online here and they said why are we missing stops. that's what you found scrolling through the tweets? >> catherine: that's what it appears people going to twitter
9:46 am
desk at fox25, tweeting with some of the passengers as well and then a lot of confusion at the time, but this happened pretty early in the morning. talking about a few hours ago, just after 6:00 but when you think about the hour of the morning, very busy time for commuters on the red line. that's sort of the prime hour when people would be going to work and school, and again, investigation underway how exactly this happened and keep an eye on how this happened. you can get the latest on myfoxboston.com and, of course, on news tonight at five and six. for now we are here at jfk stop. back over to you guys. >> daniel: you mentioned number of people on the train at the time. 6:00 in the morning bunch of people going to work and kids going to school that use the public transportation and any idea how many were on the train and number of stops it made before it eventually stopped? >> catherine: you know, daniel, that's some information
9:47 am
again, the mbta just releasing information about this incident just a short time ago. you know, you can only imagine that is the height of the rush hour commute. but even at that time it is impossible to know exact how many passengers were on board and only information we have is no passengers were injured in all of this and once the train was depowered, it sort of came to rest past the north quincy station according to the information by the mbta. at that point mbta personnel boarded red line train which they say was unmanned between braintree and north quincy stop, boarded train, brought it safely here to jfk and that's when the passengers were taken off. as part of the investigation some of the passengers were interviewed to see what kind of information they might be able to give to investigators in the course of all of this, but still this is very early on and we imagine more information will become available as we go through the day here. >> daniel: catherine parrotta reporting live for us this
9:48 am
