INCIDENT: Gatehead AHB 23.01.09

A teenage pedestrian was struck and killed by a passenger train on an AHB crossing in Scotland.

It has been reported that Robert Milloy may have been distracted by listening to music on earphones linked to his mobile phone. He was struck on the Gatehead crossing by the 1140 GMT Girvan to Kilmarnock service and died instantly.

A Network Rail spokesman said there had been no previous serious incidents at the crossing prior and a preliminary investigation found it to be in working order. Robert's father, Rab Milloy, wants Network Rail to carry out a risk assessment on the crossing.
