Multiple Injuries When MBTA Bus, Car Collide

Randolph emergency personnel and an MBTA spokesman say some riders on the bus complained of neck and back pain following the accident at about 10:40 a.m. Tuesday. Some were taken to area hospitals.

The car's driver was charged with operating under the influence of drugs following questioning by transit police.

The crash in Randolph came just minutes after an MBTA bus struck a pedestrian in Roxbury. The pedestrian was also taken to a hospital.
