Upon arrival, firefighters found a four carriage northbound train had hit a car, with one carriage totally detached and on its side. Ten passengers and one driver were on board at the time of the incident.
Firefighters used extreme caution due to the potential live high voltage electricity both above and below the train. Crews used special rescue equipment to extricate the 40-year-old train driver who was suffering from back pain. He was transported to hospital along with three other passengers.
