T Service Resumes Following Accident

MOUNT LEBANON (KDKA) — Service is back to normal on the Port Authority’s T line in the South Hills today following an accident last night involving some construction equipment.

According to Port Authority officials, a small crane lost its brakes and collided with a construction truck at a clean-up site inside the Mount Lebanon rail tunnel.

The accident, which happened around 8:45 p.m. near the Mount Lebanon police station, forced the temporary closure of the tunnel.

Officials say the inbound tracks of the “red line” T tunnel had already been shut down prior to the accident for cleanup work.

The outbound side was also stopped as a precaution. Also, bus shuttles were running between Dormont and Castle Shannon so riders could continue to get around.

No one suffered any injuries.
