Driver skids on black ice and stops on busy railway track
January 17, 2013

The weather is just getting worse this winter and with that comes the weather warnings for ice, fog, hailstones, sleet, snow rain, you name it our British Weather will provide it. We urge everyone to take extra precautions at winter, fog of course causes other cars and pedestrians to become harder to see, hailstones can distract from driving and snow and ice can cause unintentional incidents that are completely out of your control.

Unfortunately, a car and it's driver have been in this position after skidding on black ice and coming to rest across an extremely busy railway track in Suffolk yesterday morning. Greater Anglia Train operatives explained that the car had gone straight through a level crossing and had came to a stop at Haughley Junction, which is between Stowmarket and Diss.

Rail passengers who were travelling between Ipswich and Norwich and Ipswich and Cambridge faced delays to their services because of the incident. The car was removed at around 7.30 in the morning and the man who was driving got out of the car uninjured according to police.

Obviously some train services on the line were cancelled yesterday due to the accident and an hourly service between London and Norwich began operating and ticket restrictions have been removed.

In this instance nobody was hurt during the incident but there are constant reminders on the news showing just how dangerous our natural weather can be. Be extra aware of your surroundings and if a road looks particularly icy, then try and take another road if possible, or consciously make the effort to go a little slower. If everybody takes the extra precautions needed at winter, or at any time, then the roads are likely to be a lot safer.
