Train derailed at South Station

I was too slow to take a picture as the Franklin train left South Station today. We were late leaving due to track problem that fully revealed itself as a derailment on a switch close to the platforms between Track 1 and 2. The coaches were upright and tilted slightly as they straddled the track, wheels off the track itself.

We go over those switches multiple times a day. Just in the past couple of months now this is our second derailment at South Station.

Is this a mechanical failure or human error?

Will the MBTA let us know?
