Incident Staniforth Road/tram junction, and now works

Recommended Posts

Not sure what is going on at the above junction, but it appears to be quite serious.   Staniforth Road is closed off and there appears to be at least 10 or so emergency vehicles, including air ambulance, in attendance.  

 

Heads up if you are driving or getting on a tram down that way.

Isn't that same place where tram truck accident happened on first tram train day?

It is exactly the same place, 399202 involved this time.  Believe to have hit a car, damage doesn't look as bad as 204 and it appears to have remained on the rails.

I was on the tram. It's completely wiped out a car. Didn't stick around long but the drivers side was completely demolished. Not sure how everyone who was in the car is.

Taking tram is becoming an adventure. Guess this happened after sunset but the low winter sun makes it harder to see what is happening on the road.

It was dark.  Maybe someone ran a light... Stopping at that one seems to be optional for some.

It is an experiment after all.

And it's not the fault of the tram if drivers decide to ignore the traffic lights.

Maybe that is how it happened. But could you please give more clarity on where your knowledge that someone ignored the lights comes from?
