Tram accident

Tram accident Image

By Rhonda Dredge

A man in a wheelchair collided with a tram at the pedestrian crossing on the corner of Clarendon St and South Wharf Promenade on November 1.

The man, who was conscious after the incident, received cuts to both his legs and forehead.

A witness said that the man crossed against the lights just before 2pm then refused treatment after the collision.

Trams banked up behind the East Brunswick bound tram as ambulance officers assisted the man onto a trolley.

A Yarra Trams inspector said the tram driver was unavailable for comment because he had been taken for a breath test.

Breath tests are mandatory for drivers involved in accidents.

According to Transport Safety Victoria there were 55 serious injuries involving trams last year and 330 slips, trips and falls.
