Two pedestrians were killed after being struck by a tram in central Prague on Tuesday morning. The incident occurred at around 10 am by I.P. Pavlova, a busy transport hub. The dead were both men believed to have been aged around 60. Emergency services spent around 45 minutes attempting to resuscitate the pair but to no avail. Witnesses said they had tried to cross the street despite a red signal for pedestrians.
Buses were deployed to ferry passengers after tram services were interrupted between I.P. Pavlova and the nearby Karlovo náměstí.
