A TRUCK driver has been fined after a train hit the back of his vehicle in Springvale, causing disruptions to the Pakenham line and Springvale Rd.
On November 28, a train hit the back of the tip truck at the Springvale Rd level crossing about 9am.
The collision damaged the train, the truck, the signals and the boom gates at the crossing.
There were no reports of injuries.
Police said the driver received a $244 fine for failing to keep the railway tracks clear.
The road and intersection was closed for about 3 1/2 hours and there were road closures for most of the day on the southbound lane of Springvale Rd.
Christian Mills, of Clayton, was on the train when the crash happened.
“I was right up the front. It was a bit scary first of all.
“You didn’t know what was happening and then the train came to a halt.”
Mr Mills said the Springvale grade separation could not come soon enough.
