A major accident caused excitement in Saint-Louis on Tuesday afternoon. A van rammed at 15.15 shortly before the last stop of the line 3 at the Saint-Louis station, a tram from the Basel transport companies (BVB), as the BVB media center said on request. The impact was so severe that the tram was partially lifted off the rails.
According to the French newspaper L & # 39; Alsace, the 47-year-old tram driver and the 33-year-old deliveryman were slightly injured in the accident. Four passengers on the tram, including a child, suffered a shock and had to be cared for. This information was not confirmed by BVB and the police in Saint-Louis.
Probably the van overlooked the approaching tram at the unsecured crossing of Alexandre Freud Strasse.
The operation of the tram line is interrupted between Burgfelderhof and Saint-Louis station. According to BVB, the tram route is probably closed for about 24 hours. First the tram train must be pulled. Then the pole will be repaired. Replacement buses are in use. (Bz / SDA)
