Andy sent me this direct.
Thought you all might like to see.

Regretfully, there has been another bad accident on the Pinzgaubahn which happened at around 10:00 this morning resulting in 15 casualties ... one serious (presumably the railcar driver). VTs13 (formerly OBB 5090-003) collided with a French articulated lorry at a level crossing near Piesendorf, just over 5 miles from Zell-am-Zee. This is an ungated level crossing which as you know is the norm on Austrian narrow gauge level crossings.

Thanks Carl ...

... some video news footage (German language) to give a wider view. Line looks straight and lorry looks to have turned into the crossing.
