First Fatal Accident for Dublin’s Luas Tram

A man was struck and killed by the red line Luas Tram last weekend. The tram operator, Veolia Transport, is conducting an investigation in coordination with the Irish Railway Safety Agency. This is the first fatal accident since the tram was inaugurated in 2004. There were 17 “contact” incidents between people and the tram in 2007. A December 2007 incident caused serious head injuries to another man.
