INCIDENT: Cornton AHB 26/10/09

A bus collided with a barrier at an automatic half-barrier crossing in Stirlingshire.

The First Bus service 54 to Bridge of Allan was on the crossing but clear of the rails when it was struck by a descending barrier. No injuries were reported on the bus. Witnesses said that the bus was able to reverse away from underneath the barrier.

Network Rail reported that both the warning lights and barriers were working properly and claimed that the bus failed to stop at the lights.

British Transport Police say that a 61-year-old man will be the subject of a report to the local procurator fiscal in connection with a number of alleged road traffic act offences.
