My thoughts and best wishes go out to everyone involved - to all the people killed and injured, their families, the emergency service and medical people who are dealing with the rescue/recovery/treatment/cleanup, and the local community.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

They're still going - trying to retrieve bodies. It's horrible, and the poor truck driver has survived, although I'm sure he's going to wish he didn't. He now has to live with those deaths on his shoulders; whether he was actually at fault or not.

well apparently he hit the trainlight post in an attempt to avoid a collision, so one suspects he was trying to stop and something was preventing him, however there is anecdotal evidence of truckdrivers trying to slip in front of oncoming trains in which case maybe he left braking too late and swerved at the last minute? Who knows, we'll just have to wait for the inquiry. They're going on about barriers, but seriously does anyone think a boom gate would have stopped a truck going that fast? may have slowed it down a little, if that.

nup a boom gate wouldnt stop it, my step dad, step brothers and my father in law all drive big trucks and you cant stop something a couple of tonnes in weight when its going so fast.

There is no way the boom gates would of stopped that truck, my husband & step dad also drive big trucks With that much weight behind the wheel nothing would stop it, I just don't understand why the driver wasn't cautious around a train crossing..

Apparently there was also a warning grill in the road about the rail intersection.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
