Moscow Trolleybus Falls into Pit Caused by Ruptured Steam Pipe

A trolleybus partially fell into a pit formed by the rupture of a steam pipe in central Moscow, the Interfax news agency reported Thursday.

“No one was injured. Only the trolleybus fell into the ravine,” deputy mayor for housing and public works Peter Biryukov said, Interfax reported.

The ruptured pipe occurred at the intersection between Serafimovicha Ulitsa and Sofia Naberezhnaya on Thursday evening, Interfax reported. The trolleybus has to be towed out of the ravine, but suffered no damages.
