Two Trapped after Tram Overturns in Croydon

A tram has overturned in Croydon, South London this morning leaving two people trapped and a further 40 plus injured.

The incident, involving a two-car vehicle, occurred at about 6.10am in a tunnel near the Sandilands tram stop. Originally five people were trapped however three have been freed since early reports this morning.

A spokeswoman for London Fire Brigade said:

“A two-car tram overturned. Five persons are confirmed trapped, and 40 persons injured.”

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said:

“We are attending an incident in the Croydon area and have multiple resources on the way.”

Witnesses to the incident, including 23 year old Hannah Collier, said they saw people being carried away on stretchers.

“I heard a massive crash at about 6.15am, then heard shouting, then the emergency services arrived. I’d say there are roughly 20-30 vehicles there now, then they started bringing up the casualties, some very seriously injured.”

Police described the accident a “serious incident” and images on social media have shown emergency services working at the scene.

The London Tramlink Twitter feed confirmed this morning that no services were operating between Reeves Corner and Addington Village/Harrington Road.
