Car on Railway Crossing

The collision took place at around 9.15am at the crossing near Newland Signal Box in Stock Lane, and involved two cars travelling in opposite directions. One fire crew from Malvern attended the incident, and firefighters used a winch to pull the car from the crossing to safety.

Trains in both directions were stopped while the crossing was cleared.

Watch Commander Martin Gray from Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) said: “Thankfully no one was injured as a result of this collision but the driver was understandably rather shaken.”

He confirmed that the car was removed and made safe by 9.40am.
