Low speed derailment near Kimberley
A 17 year old youth has been identified and will be proceeded against under the Youth Justice Act regarding a near-miss involving a trail bike and a Don River Railway tourist train on 9 February 2020.
The incident occurred at an area referred to as ‘Olympic Curve’.
“It was very fortunate that no one was seriously injured as a result of the incident, but it will no doubt have a lasting effect on the train driver,” said Inspector Steve Jones.
“There was another other youth identified who was under 10 years of age and he has been provided suitable advice from police regarding his actions.”
If anyone witnesses an unauthorised person in the rail corridor or acting suspiciously near rail infrastructure, they should contact TasRail on 1300 TASRAIL or Tasmania Police on 13 1444 or Triple Zero (000) in the case of an emergency.
