An accident scared drivers and passengers of the CPTM on the night of this Tuesday, 11, in Sao Paulo. One Porsche plunged from the Ari Torres bridge, fell on the express lane at Marginal Pinheiros and overturned to a stop on the tracks of the line 9-Emerald. The vehicle broke through the grid that separates the two tracks. The train that was passing at the moment came to touch the car, which hit an energy pole, interrupting the circulation between Berrini and Vila Olímpia stations. Pieces of the vehicle were scattered on the waterfront. The driver was rescued consciously and taken to Albert Einstein Hospital. According to the Fire Department, she had laceration on her foot and generalized abrasions on her body. The Paese System, with buses, was activated to serve CPTM passengers. The marginal lane was only cleared for cars at around 10:30 pm.
