INCIDENT: Hagg Lane AHB, Yorkshire 05/01/10

A car collided with a passenger train at an automatic half-barrier crossing in Yorkshire.

It is believed that the driver's car skidded on snow onto the Hagg Lane crossing near South Duffield, North Yorkshire. The driver of the Hull to Manchester train had seen the car obstruct the crossing and applied the emergency brake. The car driver was able to exit the car before the low-speed collision occurred. No injuries were reported and the train did not derail.
