After yesterday's Green Link derailment in Boston's Fenway section injured several people and forced some commuters to rely on shuttle buses, service has returned to normal this morning.

The MBTA made the announcement over Twitter.

An outbound Green Line train went off the track underground and struck a wall shortly after 12:20 p.m. Monday, sending 10 people, including the driver, to the hospital with minor injuries, the Associated Press reported. The cause of the crash is being investigated.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo told WBUR the derailment occurred in an area where the tracks on the C and D branches intersect, which is near Fenway Park.

Peter Wilson, the managing editor at WBZ, said the investigation will include checking the stability of the tunnel.
