A vehicle crashed into a barrier at the edge of the top deck of the parking garage at the MBTA Alewife station Saturday afternoon, and was left partially hanging off of the building, according to officials.
Around 1:30 p.m., a man slammed his vehicle into the barrier causing concrete debris to fall and shatter glass panels in the station’s lobby and mezzanine, said MBTA spokesperson Joe Pesaturo in an e-mail.
He was transported to a local hospital with injuries, Pesaturo said, but didn’t give details about his condition. One person in the lobby suffered a minor hand injury, he said.
Preliminary findings indicate the crash was intentional, Pesaturo said.
Shuttle buses were replacing service between the Davis and Alewife stations, according to a tweet from the MBTA.
An MBTA spokesperson said the station is “closed indefinitely for clean-up and recovery efforts” Saturday night.
The station was closed pending structural evaluation, which engineers planned to conduct Saturday afternoon, said the MBTA and the Cambridge Fire Department on Twitter.
A message seeking more information was sent to MBTA Transit Police.
