Tram accident

filed on: 26.11.2007 (26th Nov 2007)

On the evening of 22nd November, a head-on collision between two trams occurred at Schwamendingerplatz. Seven people were injured. The accident occurred at the track crossing where trams switch from left-hand to right-hand running (the former applies in the subway on account of the island platforms). The crossing is not protected by signals, but the normal ruling is that trams entering the subway should give way to those leaving. The cause of the accident is not clear. The trams involved were 3017 on route 9 (outbound) and 2049 on route 7 (inbound). Both have suffered significant damage.
