Man to appear in court over first Tram-Train collision

A 60 year old man has been charged for driving without due care and attention and for contravening a red light following the collision between a lorry and a tram-train on the first day of the service to Rotherham Parkgate on 25th October. The man, from Rotherham, was driving the lorry when the collision happened at the road crossing between Woodbourn Road and Attercliffe causing 399 204 to derail and services to be suspended. The tram-train remains out of service although the undamaged section has recently been joined to the undamaged sections of 399 202 (also damaged in a collision at the same location) to make one good vehicle. He is due to appear at Sheffield Magistrates Court on 14th February.
