The incident occurred on the evening of December 3 on Degtyarevskaya Street, in the capital. The tram running on route No. 14 got into an accident.
Not far from the scene is the metro station Beresteyskaya. The accident is reported to the facebook community dtp.kiev.ua.
The cause of the incident could be bad weather, as snow has been falling in Kiev for two days in a row. Fortunately, there were no casualties.
However, due to the accident, the movement of trams from the Kontraktovaya Ploshchad and Lukyanovka metro stations towards the Beresteyskaya station was completely blocked.
On the network, users write that this is not the first such case on this section of the road and add that there may be some problems with the track. Another part of the people is happy that there were no casualties and jokes: “the tram must not have changed the wheels for the winter version”
