A car collision with a pole causes total blockage on Thursday afternoon (1st) on John Boyd Dunlop Avenue, one of the main roads in Campinas.. The accident happened around 11 am on the approach to Rua Achiles Bertoldi, in the Satellite Iris region. A 69-year-old woman was injured and was referred to the PUC-Campinas Hospital, with abdominal and chest pain.

At around 12:20 pm, the two lanes of the avenue were still blocked. The BRT corridor was partially released. Even with the partial release, traffic remains congested for about 1km, until the Nova Esperança region. In images taken from the site, it is possible to see that after the car hit the pole, the structure leaned over the tracks. Bus passengers gave up waiting and got out of vehicles because of the ban. To avoid the blockade, some cars invaded the opposite lane and continued their journey.

Emdec (Campinas Municipal Development Company) teams are on site. When contacted, CPFL reported that a team from the company was sent on an emergency basis to assess the damage to the affected pole and carry out maintenance.
