Rotterdam tram driver Rodney Luxemburg is turning into something of a YouTube sensation with soothing videos of his tram running routes through the city. The unedited videos begin at the start of the route, and follows the entire route, with only the tram noises - ringing bell, wheels, opening doors and the stop announcements - in the background.
A 16-year-old girl was hit by a tram at the intersection of Burgemeesteer Van Leeuwenlaan and Burgemeester Roellstraat in Slotermeer, Amsterdam on Monday afternoon. She died at the scene, Het Parool reports.
The accident happened around 1:40 p.m. Bystanders report that the girl was dragged a couple of meters by the tram.
Local residents told AT5 that they've repeatedly sounded the alarm about the dangerous situation at the intersection, but so far their warnings were ignored.
