A passenger was dragged along by a tram in Hanover and was seriously injured.
The 40-year-old was dragged about a hundred yards on Wednesday before his arm came out of the door.
The man fell next to the tracks, as the police announced.
Rescue workers took care of the injured and brought him to a clinic.
According to the information, the driver of the tram was initially unaware of the accident and drove on.
According to initial findings, the man initially got off at a bus stop at noon, but reached into the car to pick up something.
The doors closed and the man's arm was trapped.
The train driver was informed of the accident by the control center and took the tram to a depot where the wagon was examined.
The police are investigating negligent assault and asking witnesses to come forward.
