“Delivery van drove along the rails at Diamant”

“Delivery van drove along the rails at Diamant”

A delivery
van has been seen driving along the tramrails in an underground Brussels tram
station.  A video posted on social media
shows the van driving on the rails.  It
passes a tram driving in the other direction and then comes to a halt at a
platform.

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.
