How Often Do Streetcars Get Into Accidents?

Ever wonder how often street car crashes happen? Most people have probably never seen one, but they do occur. New Orleans streetcar crashes do happen occasionally. 

The trolley is one of New Orleans’s most prominent, cultural icons and is recognized as a part of the city’s storied and varied history. Though streetcar accidents do occur, thankfully, they are not too frequent.

In 2016, 114 collisions were reported to the National Transit Database, which receives reports from across the country, including Louisiana and New Orleans. Sixteen people were injured in a trolley accident last year as a result of these collisions. 

In 2017, so far (since February), eighteen people have sustained a trolley accident injury.
