Train pushes car from tracks

Updated: 

A motorist who accidentally drove their car onto train tracks could do nothing but watch as an approaching train collided with the stricken vehicle.

The incident, which was caught on a nearby CCTV camera, begins as the driver approaches a level crossing from the right hand side.

The driver appears to misjudge the left hand turn after the crossing, and instead turns onto the track, where their vehicle becomes stranded.

The footage then skips further on, to the point where emergency services have arrived.

As the level crossing barriers close, a locomotive can be heard approaching, sounding its horn and braking heavily.

However, it cannot come to a stop soon enough and collides with the car, pushing it off the tracks.

The train eventually comes to a halt further up the track.

Fortunately, no one is believed to have been injured in the incident.
