A U.S. Postal Service truck struck a light-rail train yesterday afternoon, the second vehicle since Friday to have been damaged in a collision with a Mass Transit Administration train, authorities said.
No one was injured in either incident, MTA officials said.
Yesterday's accident occurred at 2:08 p.m., when the mail truck attempted to make an illegal right turn from Howard Street to Preston Street and collided with the northbound train, said Dianna Rosborough, an MTA spokeswoman.
The truck blocked both the north and south rail lines for about 40 minutes and passengers were transferred to other trains, Ms. Rosborough said. The truck driver, whose name was not available, was cited for making an illegal turn.
