As part of its continuing investigation into a transit system accident in downtown Boston, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will open the public accident docket on Wednesday.

On May 8, 2009, a westbound Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) light rail passenger train struck the rear of a stopped MBTA train on the Green Line in Boston. Approximately 46 passengers sustained minor injuries.

The information being released is factual in nature and does not provide any analysis. It will include investigative group factual reports and other documents from the investigation. All of these materials will be made available at 10:00 a.m. ET on November 10 on the following page of the NTSB's Website:
