ALLSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Service on the MBTA Green Line B Branch was completely restored on Saturday morning after two trolleys collided near Boston University on Friday.

One trolley rear-ended another at around 6 p.m. along Commonwealth Avenue by the Agganis Arena -- sending over 20 passengers and a driver to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

MBTA Green Line service was previously suspended between Packard's Corner and Kenmore after the crash. Officials said the two damaged trolley cars involved have since been removed and are being investigated.

A cause of the crash has not yet been identified, pending the results of drug and alcohol tests of the drivers who were operating the trolleys.

The National Transportation Safety Board also said on Saturday that it is investigating the incident.

MBTA officials said that there were around 65 to 70 people on board both trains at the time.
