<?EM-dummyText [Drophead goes here] ?>

A woman was hit by a Green Line trolley as she tried to cross the tracks near Summit Avenue in Brookline Thursday, causing officials to temporarily replace rail service with shuttle buses on the C Line, according to the MBTA. Regular service has resumed.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said the trolley "made contact with the woman," and that she was conscious and alert when she was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital.

The problem was reported at 9:50 a.m. Officials announced at 10:38 that train service had resumed.

Affected stops included Coolidge Corner, Summit Avenue, Brandon Hall, Fairbanks Street, Washington Square, Tappan Street, Dean Road, and Englewood Avenue, and Cleveland Circle.
