A passenger car ended up on the train tracks at the Bryn station in Oslo earlier Saturday afternoon. The driver may have a broken his arm. The train traffic was back to normal by 3pm.


The police received the call at 13:30 Saturday afternoon and were told that a passenger car had driven through a fence and ended up down on the train tracks. An hour later, the car was towed up.

Train traffic was stopped between Oslo S and Grorud as a result of the incident.

The police announce that the driver of the car suddenly swerved, hit the fence and then drove down a slight slope and down on to the railway.

– “He swerved to avoid hitting a cat, lost control of the car and ended up on the railroad tracks. He was injured and has broken his arm. He was taken to emergency,” says operations director Cathrine Sylju in Oslo Police District to NTB.

She adds that the car has now been removed from the railroad tracks and that rail traffic will continue as normal.
