Derailed trolley operator has record of moving violations

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -

The driving record of the MBTA operator involved in the derailment on the green line has been under scrutiny.

According to The Herald, his personal driving record includes 20 moving violations between 1984 and 2009. That operator was hired by the MBTA in 2008, one year before the agency was required to vet operator's driving records before hiring them.

He is now on leave pending an investigation.

MBTA officials said speed was a factor in Monday's crash at the Fenway stop.

Ten people were hurt.
