INCIDENT: South Drove AHB, Lincolnshire 05.01.09

A woman died when her car crashed on a crossing in icy conditions and was then struck by a passenger train.

Moira Koune was driving over the South Drove AHB near Spalding, Lincolnshire, when her car was in collision with a Ford Transit van. Her car was stuck on the crossing when the barriers descended and was hit by the 0833 Peterborough to Lincoln passenger service. The van driver was able to steer clear of the crossing and was trying to reach Miss Koune's car when it was struck. No injuries were reported on the train, which did nor derail.
