Midland Metro tram crashes into car in Wolverhampton


The driver of the car was taken to hospital

A car has been shunted several feet down the track in a crash with a tram.

The collision involving a Midland Metro tram happened at the station in Bilston Road in Ettingshall, Wolverhampton, at about 16:00 BST on Sunday.

The car driver, a man in his 60s, was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Midland Metro said: "The incident happened at the Priestfield tram stop car park. Emergency services were called and the full service was later resumed at around 17:30 BST."

The car was shunted about 10ft (3m) down the track in the crash.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "On arrival, crews found a car that had suffered significant damage to the passenger side having been shunted down the tracks."

He said the driver of the car suffered chest pain from his seatbelt and was taken to New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
