A young man was hit by a tram at Svratecká tram station in Brno-Komín this morning around half past eight.

The tramline was stopped for about 4 hours and trams 1 and 3 were replaced with buses to Bystrc from the Vozovna Komín stop.

Police are currently investigating the causes of the accident; generally speaking, the station is considered potentially risky because of the narrow crossing space between the tracks and the road.
