Trial to begin in case of Salem woman injured in T crash

(Continued)

In 2010, subway car driver Aiden Quinn admitted typing a text message to his girlfriend just before the trolley he was driving smashed into the rear of another T car at the Government Center station. He pleaded guilty to gross negligence and was sentenced to two years probation and 100 hours of community service.

Two dozen lawsuits have been filed against the MBTA, nine of which were settled for an average payout of $31,000, the T said last year.

In 2012, a Scituate woman was awarded $1.2 million by a Suffolk Superior Court jury in the first civil action stemming from the case.
