POLICE have warned motorists to take better care around level crossings after a peak-hour accident that injured one woman and has caused trains to be cancelled on the South Morang line.
Leading Senior-Constable John Bateman from Epping Highway Patrol said the accident at the Reservoir junction crossing was the result of what started as a minor “nose to tail” collision between two cars at about 9am.
He said the two drivers got out of their vehicles to exchange details, leaving the rear car still on the tracks.
Leading Sen-Constable Bateman said the train collided with the car, causing it to spin into one of the drivers — a woman aged in her 40s — standing by the tracks.

He said she had sustained serious bruising and grazing and had been taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
“This could all have been avoided if the two people had moved their cars into a safer space before exchanging numbers,” Leading Sen-Constable Bateman said.
“For anyone who is in a similar accident, please move to safe location before exchanging details.”
