The pictures show a white van moving along the tram rails at high speed. When it reaches the platform the van’s tyres give up and it grinds to a halt.
Brussels media group Bruzz reports that the incident happened at the Diamant premetro station in Schaarbeek last Saturday around 8AM. As a result, tram services were disrupted until the afternoon.
The driver now faces a hefty bill for tow-away services and repairs to the tram infrastructure. He, or possibly she, will also have to pay compensation for disrupting the traffic and possibly also a fine.
