State Transportation Secretary Richard Davey said today he fired Sydley Gardner, the Green Line driver involved in this week’s trolley crash near Kenmore Station, because Gardner had failed to report a previous collision with a pedestrian. But the T was forced to rehire the driver after an arbitrator ruled in his favor, Davey said.
“Obviously, I disagreed with the arbitrator’s decision. If not, I wouldn’t have moved to terminate him,’’ Davey said. Davey was general manager of the MBTA in September 2010 when he ordered that Gardner be fired.
