Around 40 people were treated in two hospitals in Sarajevo on Friday after two trams collided in Sarajevo's main street, between the National Museum and the US embassy, the daily Oslobodjenje reported.

The crash happened on the intersection where one tram usually turns left from the main street, towards the railway station area.

Traffic, which is often confusing in that part of the city in the afternoon, because of the number of cars, was blocked by the accident.
