Sometimes a bad day at work means falling behind on emails. Other times it means letting your train run away from you.
"That investigation at this time is focused primarily on operator error," MassDOT Secretary Stephanie Pollack said.
A Boston Red Line train with passengers on board left Braintree Station early Thursday morning without its operator. The train traveled four stops, a total of nine minutes, before crews could power down the rail. Luckily none of the passengers inside were injured. (Video via ABC)
