1 dead, 3 injured in streetcar accident

An official says one person has died and three are seriously injured after a streetcar smashed into cars and a bus in northeast Romania.
Adrian Mihai, spokesman for public transport for the northeastern city of Iasi, said Monday's accident occurred as the streetcar was descending a hill, when it collided with a bus, and several cars in its path. Dozens of passengers on the streetcar and bus suffered slight injuries.
Mihai said initial investigations showed the streetcar had problems with its brakes.
The streetcar was built in 1973 and donated to Romania by the Swiss government.
