10:26 am
news this morning. nbta officials reported on the red line from braintree without an operator. and we're learning this investigation includes a look into reports of possible tampering in the cab of this train. >> in particular, sarah, with the safety device that's contained in this cab. we're just giving you a map here, because our understanding is that the train left the braintree station, and it finally came to a stop at the jfk-umass station where the officials were able to board it and take a look around. we know with this incident that an mbta worker was struck by the train, and sadly the person was injured. we don't know what capacity this worker was working and where he or she was him. but adding to this, the boston
10:27 am
aware of what happened as well. and they're too taking part in the investigation. so a multifaceted story that began with a cab that left the station, braintreeization early this morning when everybody was there in the morning commute. >> it's interesting that the fbi is involved in this, but as we said earlier, it includes a look into the initial report that a safety device within the train's cab may have been tampered with. the authorities are interviewing witnesses, and the train's engineer. nobody was injured. and no passengers were on the train at the time. but 6 a.m., people are going to work. the inbound train departed without an operator. it made no stops, when the personnel depowered the third
10:28 am
complete stop. the t personnel boarded the train and operated it north to jfk-umass where the passengers were asked to exit the train so it could be taken out of service and examined. the investigators are interviewing the witnesses and the train operator. the regular service did resume at 10:30 this morning. >> they had moderate, minor delays, from what we understand, and service resuming, and we're getting reaction from local lawmakers on this. we understand that we have a statement from the general manager of the mbta, frank de paul a. and he said that the passenger safety is the highest for the mbta and this is troubling. it's under investigation by the transit police detectives, and witnesses be obviously are going to be interviewed here, the train operator as well.
10:29 am
people able to tamper with the safety device contained in the cab, and you have as well, and i do too, a statement from the press secretary for governor charlie baker, saying that the governor is grateful that obviously no passengers were injured in this incident. and he's calling it troubling as well. and they will be monitoring the investigation very closely too. >> and again, the mbta is confirmed that an employee was struck by this train and received a minor injury. we're waiting to hear what capacity this employee worked with the mbta and where it occurred as we look live over sky hd. and the boston fbi is aware that there's an incident and they're in contact with the transit police. so it's very interesting that the fbi is involved. and again, the investigation includes a look into this initial report that a safety device within the train's cab
10:30 am
and we're still waiting to find out this employee that was struck, what capacity did this employee work with the train? we're unaware of where the driver of this train was, since it did leave without an operator, and since that cab may have been tampered with on this mbta red line train. >> we don't know how many passengers were onboard at the time. and clearly that's one area that we'll be taking a closer look into. as you see here, sky seven has made it to the scene, and we see the investigators going carefully, dill gently along the track. obviously, you don't see a lot of traffic at this time. and once again, we know that service has resumed as of about 30 minutes ago, but probably best to be advised that there are going to be pretty serious delays. they call them minor, but clearly in an investigation of
10:31 am
stop the train at any given time. we don't know at this point. so that's something if you are traveling in the area of the red line. >> this happened at 6:08 a.m., the inbound departing train which departed braintree, and you have to imagine that during that time, a lot of people were traveling into work, and the train was full of people. >> right, and we also saw incidents as well where the story this morning, firefighters here in boston trying to help a woman who had gone in the path of the train, on the red line as well. so one would think that the whole process of deelectrifying that third rail, here's the investigation, and as we're bringing in 7's sheryl. we're hearing that the fbi is involved. and this adds another layer of interest, i would think and certainly speculation. what are your sources telling
10:32 am
>> well, if this is operator error? apparently they checked something and maybe did not secure appropriately the braking device, so the train took off on the tracks. they were able to stop the train, no passenger injuries, but the motor man was slightly injured. he's being treated at a local hospital and he did not have life-threatening injuries. all of this came as a result of the transit police talking to the train motor person and passengers. so it appears at this time that the fbi is involved because of the heightened level of security that we have going on throughout the world and the country, and the transit system is always thought to have been a vulnerable place. and of course the mbta looking at all of the security and the rail yard to make sure that they're appropriately secure. the big federal grant given to
10:33 am
upgrade all of systems in the rail yards. so they will be looking at that to make sure that they're all operational. but at this point, this does not look according to my sources that it's anything other than an operating error, and a failure to appropriately secure the braking device. now, this is still very very fresh and new, and the transit police are still investigating. so this is the information that i have, according to this moment in time. it's still, as we said, a developing story. and it's a concern for a lot of people who use the mbta and travel every day on it, and as with any type of incident involving mass transit, it's worrisome. but at this point, they don't believe that it's anything to do with terror related. and a motor person on the train got out to check something and
10:34 am
equipment and they're looking at whether or not anyone else could have entered the cab and tampered with anything, but i have no information that that was the case at all. and at this point, that's what we know. >> have your sources found out when the train took out without the operator, was there anyone else on the train. >> it would have been impossible for the passengers to know. it just looked like the train went on the tracks and it kept going, and it was worrisome and it was odd, obviously the train wasn't stopping at stations. no one was injured on the train or any of the platforms that the train traveled through, and it was able to be stopped: that's something that they're able to do within the system, shut down the third rail. it doesn't happen instantly, but
10:35 am
and one of the things that we do know from the mbta, one the employees was struck by this train, and they have minor injuries. so once again, 7's sheryl, communicating with her sources, and this doesn't appear to be any kind of malicious acts, and in fact, operator error is what they're going with. the train left the station on its own, at least the cash did from braintree to jfk mass. >> the train operator got off to check something, and it resumed. we'll continue to follow this throughout the day, and if there are any other updates, we'll bring them to you as we get them. them hillary's plan: raise the minimum wage,
10:36 am
taxes for the middle class, and new incentives for business to share profits with employees instead of just rewarding ceos. those at the top are doing just fine. it's your family that needs a raise. i'm hillary clinton, and i approve this message. [ dog barks ] [ bark ] there it is! [ gasps ]

distracted driving danger. >> joel feldman and diane anderson know it firsthand. six years ago, their 21-year-old daughter casey was hit and killed by a distracted driver. since then, they've made it their mission to help prevent this from happening to anyone else. >> casey's crash was in 2009. it was broad daylight. she had had a summer job in ocean city on the board walk. she was walking in a crosswalk, was three quarters of the way across the intersection, when a driver blew through the stop sign and literally ran her over. he claims he'd never seen her. she was conscious after she was run over. she was able to speak with the emergency responders, and the
10:43 am
they asked her how the accident mom." >> i was shocked. i was angry. i think that then, of course, it led into grief, . although it's been six years, it's just really, really hard each and every day. >> beside being a young woman who was so full of life, she was also just a lot of fun and had a great sense of humor, and she was a person everybody wanted to be around. >> i go to weddings now, and they're as painful as you can imagine. seeing the dad walk down the aisle, or the first dance with his daughter. knowing that'll never happen. we started end distracted driving, e and the mission is to educate the public about distracted driving.
10:44 am
a gift every parent can think about giving their parent is be the driver you want your teen to be. model safe driving. what i like people to remember is we have the power through our driving to take life, but we also have the power to safe lives. i want people to look at that pretty face, to learn about casey, but i also want them to think that, that picture, the pictures we have of casey, they show an unlimited future. an unlimited potential. it was taken away in just a few seconds. >> our thanks to casey's parents. diane anderson and joel feldman for sharing that story with us. >> jennifer jolly is here with strategies to prevent distracted driving. as more people hit the road during holiday season. good morning. >> good morning. >> sadly, we hear so many stories like caseys and we're scasey's and we're trying to prevent that.
10:45 am
