Kingston: Truck accident slows commuter rail trains

Police in Kingston were forced to shut down part of Landing Road after a truck hit a railroad bridge around 8:30 a.m. today.

The MBTA reported the accident was causing commuter train delays of 35 to 40 minutes.

Police asked Kingston’s Building Commissioner to inspect the bridge, which is part of the MBTA’s Old Colony line, because a girder was damaged.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
