BOSTON, March 10 (UPI) -- Ten people were inured Monday afternoon after a Green Line train derailed near Boston's Fenway Park.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officials said the first car of the two-car train crashed into a wall near Kenmore Station, injuring nine passengers and the operator.

Though six patients were taken to the hospital, none appeared to have serious injuries.

An MBTA photo shows the train leaning off the track and into the wall.

Though buses replaced affected C and D Line trains with buses, several MBTA commuters complained about the resulting confusion and chaos to the Boston Globe.

“It was a big cluster of people not knowing what happened,” said a 19-year-old college student who missed two classes. “I had no clue what was going on.”
