Police say escalator accident on Prague metro caused by technical error


A police investigation into an accident on an escalator in the Prague metro last year has ruled out foul play. The police who investigated the matter as a possible endangerment of public safety, have concluded that the accident happened due to a technical error, and have closed the case without filing charges. The accident happened on November 27th of last year when one of the escalators on Jungmanova metro station unexpectedly went into reverse operation causing a human pile-up. Three women ended up in hospital.
