PostSubject: How can this have happened??   Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:05 am

A woman has died after her car was one of two vehicles struck by a train on a level crossing.

The 50-year-old victim was airlifted to hospital following the collision just outside the village of Moreton on Lugg, Hereford, but died from her injuries.

Her husband was also injured, as were another wman and her daughter in a second car.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said: "Two vehicles were struck by a train on the crossing at 10.34am on Saturday.

"The occupants of the first vehicle, a husband and wife who live locally, were taken to hospital.

"The female, aged 50, sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to hospital where she has sadly died.

"Her husband was taken to hospital by ambulance where he was treated for minor injuries."

The woman in the second car and her 12-year-old daughter were treated in hospital for minor injuries and shock but have since been discharged.

The driver of the train, the 8.30am Arriva passenger service from Manchester Piccadilly to Milford Haven, was checked by paramedics at the scene, as were a number of passengers who were treated for shock.

You should never try to take on a train with your car!

Exactly Am - I find it incredible that anyone would run the risk but unbelievable that two people did at the same time.

Of course, I suppose that the signal may have been broken.

Yeah, it's so hard to spot trains. Especially without the regulation anorak and flask.
