INCIDENT: Whitemoss AHB, 05/01/08

A lorry crashed through an automatic half barrier and was in collision with a locomotive on the line between Gleneagles and Perth. The driver and passenger of the lorry were unhurt whilst the loco driver was slightly injured and taken to Perth Royal Infirmary.

The potato lorry is said to have slid on ice down the hill on the approach to the crossing and was unable to move away before the Direct Rail Services locomotive collided with the lorry's trailer.

Shortly before, a passenger train had passed over the crossing and a sleeper train was due over within minutes.
