Man dies in truck and train collision at Culburra in state’s Southeast

A truck driver has died after his prime mover collided with a freight train at a level crossing in the state’s southeast.

The 62-year-old man from Meningie died near the intersection of Boothby Rd and Dukes Highway at Culburra about 12.30pm on Sunday.

Two driver’s on-board the train – which was travelling to Dimboola in western Victoria – were not injured in the crash.

Culburra is about 70km southeast of Tailem Bend and about 150 southeast of Adelaide.

The railway is the direct transport link between Adelaide and Melbourne.

Fatality Policy

When a rail accident with a fatality is reported, Railpage staff will start a new sticky thread inside the relevant forum. If a thread longer than 25 informative posts without needing excessive moderation exists on the incident, it will be cleaned up as per the rules of this policy and adopted as the official discussion thread on the incident. There will only be one thread per incident. By posting in the thread, users will automatically agree to the rules of the Fatality Policy, which will be inserted in the first post of the thread. Only informative discussion related to the incident will be allowed. The following types of posts will be deleted:

  • Condolences posts
  • Unsubstantiated accusations ("finger-pointing")
  • Reminding others of the rules - we have moderators for that! If a message is posted where the main topic of the post is in the above list, it will be deleted by Railpage staff, and the author warned.
  • Any misbehavior in a fatality thread carries a heavier warning. Warning levels will be issued at the staff member’s discretion. The Fatality Policy carries a three-strike clause with it. If a flame-war or anything remotely resembling one breaks out three times in that thread, it will be locked for three days. After that, it'll be unlocked and the flame-war counter reset to zero. Users involved will be warned accordingly. The strike count will be included in the threadstarter. Discussion may be terminated without warning at the choosing of RP Management at any time.
