A truck driver has died after his prime mover collided with a freight train at a level crossing in the state’s southeast.
The 62-year-old man from Meningie died near the intersection of Boothby Rd and Dukes Highway at Culburra about 12.30pm on Sunday.
Two drivers aboard the train – which was travelling to Dimboola in western Victoria – were not injured in the crash.
Culburra is about 70km southeast of Tailem Bend and about 150 southeast of Adelaide.
The railway is the direct transport link between Adelaide and Melbourne.
Boothby Rd is closed to all traffic between Richardson Rd and the Dukes Highway, which remains open.
