A person has died after a collision between a coal train and a car near Singleton in the New South Wales Hunter Valley coalfields.
Police say shortly after 9:00am (AEST) a car was hit by an empty QR National coal train at a level crossing on Middle Falbrook Road at Glennies Creek.
The collision happened near the Integra mine and it is understood the car driver was killed instantly.
Upper Hunter Police, QR National and the Australian Rail Track Corporation are investigating.
An ARTC spokesman says the accident has blocked the line, stopping the movement of all passenger and freight services.
He says ARTC investigators are on the way to the scene and it is likely the line will be closed for several hours.
