Woman Crushed to Death in Drawbridge Accident

A tragic accident at the Meridian Street drawbridge crushed a woman and killed her.

The woman was crossing the drawbridge when it began rising for a boat. When the drawbridge was raised, the woman fell and was crushed by the bridge, according The Boston Herald.

Although officials are classifying the death as an accident, Boston's Public Works Department could be liable for the woman's death.
