At metro station De Akkers in Spijkenisse, a metro ran through a stop block. Photos show that part of the metro has overshot and ended up on a work of art behind the rails, at a height of about 10 meters.
The train driver was able to get out of the metro himself and was taken to hospital for a check, says a spokesman for the Safety Region. As far as he knows, there were no passengers in the vehicle. However, considerable damage has occurred,
#Spijkenisse Aan het #Componistenpad is een metro door een stopblok gereden. Hierbij is forse schade ontstaan. Vooralsnog lijkt er niemand gewond te zijn. Politie ter plaatse, andere hulpdiensten zijn onderweg.— Politie24 (@Politie24) November 1, 2020
The spokesperson does not expect the metro to be salvaged tonight. “It is at a height of 10 meters at the end of the rail. It will be quite an exercise, it will take some time.” The artwork is called Whale tails and consists of two tails that come out of the water.
How it could have gone wrong is not yet known.
