STOLEN CAR STEERED INTO MASTS - TRAIN OPERATIONS INTERRUPTED

A car was stolen in the village center last night, causing the alleged perpetrator to crash into a catenary mast on the Lauterbunnen-Mürren cable car and cause damage. Train operations could only be resumed after several hours.

Last night something strange happened in Mürren. At 6.30 a.m., the Bern cantonal police were informed that a car had been stolen in the village center. The alleged perpetrator drove towards the Lauterbunnen-Mürren cable car station, whereupon he crashed into a catenary mast in the Ägerterbach area. When the police arrived at the accident site, there was no trace of the perpetrator. The cantonal police say that the investigation is ongoing.

The accident caused the overhead line masts to be damaged, and the Lauterbunnen-Mürren cable car was unable to start operating on time this morning. Since 10:00 a.m. the trains between the Grütschalp and Mürren stations have returned to normal, as the Jungfrau Railways media center reports.
