Northern Territory Police say a 44-year-old man has been killed after his car collided with a freight train last night.
The collision happened at a rail crossing near the entrance to the Pine Creek Mango Farm, about 200 kilometres south of Darwin, about 9.00pm.
Watch Commander Louise Jorgenson says the man was thrown from the car because he was not wearing a seatbelt and was killed instantly.
The two-man crew on the train were not hurt in the incident.
"It's a shocking scene... the two Darwin-based drivers on the train are very upset," Commander Jorgenson said.
The accident happened at a crossing that has no lights.
Commander Jorgenson says the driver of the train saw the car and sounded the horn but could not brake in time to avoid the collision.
Investigators are still at the scene.
