BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A slow-moving MBTA derailment at Broadway Station happened around 9:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, throwing a wrench in the morning commute of many.

T spokesman Joe Pesaturo confirmed no one was hurt in the derailment among 47 passengers onboard. The second of a six-car train "made contact with the edge of the platform" at the station in South Boston, and all passengers were able to safely exit.

As of 11 a.m. Tuesday, crews were still working to re-rail the train, and Pesaturo said in a statement "buses are replacing Red Line service between Park and JFK/UMass Stations." The MBTA Twitter provided updates on the shuttle situation, and told riders to expect delays.

And problems weren't limited to the Red Line Tuesday. Orange line riders faced a delay up to 30 minutes because of a signal problem at Wellington, with some trains at a standstill. As of 11:20 a.m., repairs were being made at the station in Medford.
