Passengers screamed as an out-of-control North Carolina streetcar barreled down a hill and crashed into an SUV last weekend.

The dramatic footage shows the moment that the two vehicles collided. One passenger told the Charlotte Observer that the streetcar tossed aside the SUV like a “piece of trash.”

The people inside the SUV suffered minor injuries. The 22 passengers in the streetcar were not hurt.

A police report says the streetcar driver “tried to stop but could not control the trolley.” Authorities believe that the brakes were working.
