A dramatic video showed the moment two trams were involved in a head-on collision as they crossed over the other’s tracks, injuring seven people.
The two trams are seen travelling in opposite directions as usual in Bucharest, Romania, on Wednesday afternoon.
The oncoming tram can be seen approaching but neither tram driver is aware their paths are about to cross.
An onboard camera captures the moment neither of the trams stop and they drive straight into each other.

The impact of the crash causes the glass windows and doors to shatter everywhere and the sides of the tram to crush.
After the crash in the Romanian capital, seven people were treated for minor injuries and three of them were taken to a nearby hospital for further medical assessment.
Initial information provided about the incident suggested one of the trams was at fault.
Later the Bucharest Traffic Police said there may have been an issue with turning the turnpike or a switch that had not been changed, reported the Romania Journal.
An investigation into the incident is underway.
