    This Trolley operator is a great nominee for "Tool of the Day"

    T crash puts spotlight on hiring criteria

    By Noah Bierman

    Globe Staff / May 12, 2009

    Last week's Green Line crash, the second in a year involving a 24-year-old operator, has renewed focus on the MBTA's training and hiring standards, which allow drivers as young as 18 to control a trolley.

    "I think, at a minimum, it should be looked at," said Senator Mark C. Montigny, a New Bedford Democrat who serves on the Legislature's Transportation Committee. "The irony is, in some places you can't even rent a car if you're under 25."

    Yesterday, local and federal officials continued to investigate Friday's crash and to evaluate possible criminal charges against Aiden Quinn, the operator who authorities said told them he was text messaging his girlfriend when he missed a red signal and rear-ended another trolley. The crash near Government Center Station sent nearly 50 people to the hospital with noncritical injuries and totaled three trolley cars.
