A 29 year old female driver miraculously avoided death and only suffered minor injuries as her car hit a train bound for Murcia from Alicante last Tuesday afternoon. The incident was at a barrier-free level crossing, though with warning lights and sound alerts, at the village of Media Legua halfway between Redovan and Molins.
The car hit one of the train carriages, with the train driver managing to stop within a few metres, and was quoted as saying that it was a miracle that it had not been derailed. The front cabin was damaged and the train managed to crawl back to the station at Callosa where passengers were taken by bus to complete their journey to Murcia City. The car driver was taken to the Vega Baja Hospital where her condition was described as “not serious”.
