Georgia authorities say the Atlanta Streetcar has been involved in two crashes with vehicles while being tested before next month’s expected launch.
Streetcar spokeswoman Sharon Gain tells that a car and the streetcar collided Sunday near Centennial Olympic Park. She said the driver tried to pass the streetcar while it was turning during a test run. Last week, a driver was accused of hitting the streetcar on Ellis Street.
No series injuries were reported in either crash.
The streetcar’s debut was recently delayed due to safety concerns.
The delay – the latest in a series of them since the streetcar system was announced – pushes the launch from November until at least Dec. 6.
The streetcar will run a 2.7-mile loop from Centennial Olympic Park to the King Center.
