Another driver lost control of the steering wheel on Bucharest’s Brasov Street and ended up on tramway number 41’s line after violently colliding with the protection fence that separates the line from the rest of the street. The employees of Bucharest’s Transport Company (RATB) spent more than one hour struggling to take the car off the tramway line.
