INCIDENT: Dingwall Middle (Newton Road) AOCL, 02/01/07

A car and train collided on an automatic open crossing in Dingwall, Scotland.

No casualties were reported and the train suffered only light damage.

The crossing has been identified by Network Rail as one of the top ten most abused crossings in Scotland. It has both a high level of near misses and collisions. 'Red light' cameras were installed in 2000 to monitor drivers who run the lights but prosecutions are said to have fallen since a Network Rail-funded enforcement team was scrapped in 2005.
