A car was in collision with a passenger train at the automatic half barrier crossing on Cullybacky Road, Ballymena, Northern Ireland.
Alan Law was taken to Antrim Area Hospital and later moved to the Royal Victoria Hospital. No injuries were reported on the train, which did not derail.
Early indications suggest that the crossing was working correctly at the time of the incident.
The body responsible for level crossings in Northern Ireland, Translink, are to launch a full investigation.
