Reinde­er kil­led in traf­fic acci­dent in Lon­gye­ar­by­en

Traf­fic in Lon­gye­ar­by­en is usual­ly quite safe, but Mon­day evening saw a tra­gic acci­dent when a car hit a reinde­er on way 500. The animal’s back was bro­ken, and the poli­ce did accor­din­gly not have a choice but to kill the reinde­er on the spot.

The­re are almost always some reinde­er some­whe­re in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, and they are usual­ly not afraid of peo­p­le or moving vehic­les and they don’t watch out for cars befo­re crossing roads. Dri­vers the­r­e­fo­re have to take gre­at care, espe­ci­al­ly at times of dark­ness.

Way 500 is the “main street” bet­ween the cent­re and the river. Most streets in Lon­gye­ar­by­en do not have names but num­bers.
