A truck driver was killed when his vehicle was hit by a
freight train at an unmarked level crossing near Woodville
The truck, which was carrying wood, and the southbound
freight train collided at a crossing on Powdrell Rd off State
Highway 2 just before 5pm, Acting Inspector Bruce Mackay
He said the train driver suffered no injures.
"I'd imagine he's pretty distraught, though," Mr Mackay said.
The train was not believed to have been moved from its tracks
but it would need to be checked before it continued.
Mr Mackay said the crash was sufficiently away from the
highway to avoid causing any traffic delays.
The age of the truck driver was unknown, Mr Mackay said.
