A car became wedged underneath the AHB at Auckley Gate House Lane near Robin Hood Airport and was struck by a Central Trains service travelling from from Peterborough to Doncaster. The car driver was able to escape from the car before the collision.
There were no injuries to the car driver, the ten passengers or the train crew. The train did not derail and was not damaged.
