QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Monday morning commuters traveling through Quincy were greeted with bus alternatives after the bodies of a man and a woman were found on the northbound track, just past Wollaston Station.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority told WBZ NewsRadio in a statement that a Red Line train operator spotted the two individuals at around 6 a.m. on Monday, after which emergency personnel were contacted. Just about a half hour later, the Quincy Police Department announced that all Red Line service in the Quincy area would be stopped for about two hours while officials responded to the scene.

Just before 7 a.m. the QPD said that Commuter Rail service would not be affected and resume as scheduled. The MBTA said the Commuter Rail would also pick up redirected Red Line passengers.

MBTA Transit Police and the Norfolk County District Attorney's office said they are working to figure out why the deceased were on the tracks, but that preliminary investigation shows the pair had not been struck by a train.

While investigations continued, Red Line service was replaced with shuttle buses running between Quincy Center and JFK/UMass Stations.
