As police investigate yesterday's tram and truck crash in Sydney's CBD, new figures show there were around 20 collisions with cars and pedestrians in the past year, and 100 near misses.
The official crash statistics obtained by the ABC reveal there were 11 collisions between trams and vehicles and another eight involving pedestrians.
There were also 61 near misses with pedestrians, 31 involving cars, and 16 between trams and cyclists. There have been no fatalities.
Transport NSW chief Howard Collins said yesterday's crash — which happened as the tram was heading towards the final stop near Circular Quay — seemed to have occurred when the truck driver misjudged a turn.
