The Detroit News

After two months of operation, a QLine streetcar was involved in its first accident Monday afternoon, a minor wreck that occurred when a silver, four-door Jeep turned in front of it.

No one was injured in the 3:15 p.m. collision.

The streetcar, one of five running at the time, was taken to the railway garage and was back in operation within 30 minutes, said QLine spokesman Dan Lijana. It sustained slight damage to its front.

The accident occurred at Woodward Avenue and Ferry Street, when the Jeep turned east onto Ferry, clipping the streetcar in the process. The Jeep took damage to its passenger side.

The 21-year-old woman who drove the Jeep was ticketed after reporting the collision at the Detroit Police Department's 7th precinct.
