17 injured in tram-tank car collision in Timisoara
17 persons were injured on Thursday after a tank car hit a tram in front of “Louis Turcanu” Hospital for Children in Timisoara (western Romania). The traffic was blocked for a few hours.
According to the local traffic policemen, the driver of the tank car turned the vehicle without making sure the way is clear, so the tank car hit the tram.
“The 40-year-old driver of the tank car turned on the street in front of the Hospital for Children, and the car collided with the tram that was going to the North Railway Station. Several passengers of the tram have been transported to hospital or needed medical care on the scene,” the policeman said.
17 persons were slightly injured in the collision, including the tram driver.
