THIS white van was left ‘written off’ and its driver taken to hospital after it was involved in a crash with a tram.

Police say the 45-year-old female driver of the Volkswagen suffered cuts on her legs in the collision at Woodbourn Road, Attercliffe, at 2pm yesterday.

Passenger Geoff Daniel, 67, sent in this picture of the drama.

He said: “The driver was very lucky– the van was written off. It was a bit surreal.”

The road was closed until 3.17pm.

Police are looking into the incident.

A Supertram spokesman said the ‘low-speed collision’ disrupted services between Nunnery Square and Meadowhall for an hour. Nobody else was hurt and Supertram is investigating.
