INCIDENT: Bog Hall Farm UWC, Durham 13.08.09
A motorist was struck by a freight train on a user worked crossing in County Durham.
The unnamed woman was reported to have edged her Mazda out onto the crossing, at Bog Hall near Stillington, to get a clearer view of the track. The vehicle was struck by a Fiddlers Ferry - Middlesbrough freight train operated by Great British Rail Freight. No injuries were reported and the train did not derail.
Comment - this photo was taken in 2006; reports suggest that the crossing is currently gated.
