Croydon Tram: Seven Dead and 50 Injured after Derailment

Seven people have died and dozens more have been injured after a tram overturned in London.

People were trapped inside and more than 50 were taken to hospital after the derailment in Croydon just after 06:00 GMT.
The tram driver, 42, from Beckenham, has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

British Transport Police said they were investigating whether he fell asleep.

The Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) said the tram was travelling at a “significantly higher speed than is permitted”.

London Ambulance Service said eight people have serious or life-threatening injuries, while a total of 51 had been taken to two hospitals.

.

Robin Smith, Assistant Chief Constable of the British Transport Police, said they were investigating whether the driver fell asleep, alongside “a number of factors”.

The RAIB said the Wimbledon-bound tram derailed as it was negotiating a “sharp, left-hand curve” which has a speed limit of 12 mph.

Trams are not fitted with any safety protection systems that apply the brakes automatically if they are going too fast, according to the Office of Rail and Road.

The overturned tram remains on its side next to an underpass and appears to have derailed where the track branches.

Kevin Snow, who was travelling to work on the tram, said he noticed it did not seem to slow down at the bend and “the next thing I knew we were on our side”.

The carpet fitter, who suffered a badly bruised shoulder, said the carriages slid for eight to ten seconds before coming to a halt.

Kudirat Okesola said her husband was travelling on the tram and suffered a “massive” cut on his face.

She said some people trapped underneath the tram were calling for help.
“People were screaming. People were crying,” she said.
