Ceiling panel on MBTA train falls on morning commuters

BOSTON (WHDH) - A ceiling panel inside an MBTA Orange Line train fell Thursday on morning commuters.

Commuter Juliana Piemonte tweeted a photo of a detached panel around 9 a.m. with a caption that read, “when the ceiling on the T falls on your head…”

The train was approaching the Haymarket stop when the panel fell.

It’s not clear if anyone was injured.

The MBTA responded to Piemonte’s tweet, saying the issued would be “remedied asap.”

Officials tell 7News that an Orange Line supervisor boarded the train at Downtown Crossing, and secured the dropped panel.

Vehicle maintenance personnel are investigating the cause.
