A level crossing. Drawing. – Alexandre Gelebart / 20 Minutes
The driver, greatly shocked, was not injured in the accident. This Thursday morning, around 8:30 am, a car was struck by a train at a level crossing located in Civrieux-d’Azergues, west of Lyon. During the collision, around 40 passengers were present in the train traveling between Lyon and Roanne. None of them were injured according to Progress.
According to the first elements, it would seem that the motorist broke down when crossing the level crossing and would have gotten into the front of the TER. As a compulsory safety measure, “all trains are at a standstill on the Lyon to Roanne line,” said the SNCF this Thursday morning, which provides for a gradual return to normal at noon.
Trains on the Moulins-Paray-le-Monial and Lyon line are also affected by this disruption, adds the public company. This accident mobilized about twenty firefighters and gendarmes on site this morning, as part of the investigation intended to clarify the circumstances of the collision.
