Summary
  • At around 0830 as train 9141 approached the Millewa Road level crossing, the Guard (second person aboard the locomotive) noticed a B-Double tanker truck turning right out of Lignum Avenue which serves the Lindemans winery, and head north on the Calder Highway. He attempted to sight the truck through the trees as it headed parallel to the train on the adjacent highway to see if its left-hand turn indicator was flashing for an intended left turn into Millewa Road. He was unable to ascertain this but the crew soon noticed the truck turn into Millewa Road and proceed across the level crossing in their path. The driver had sounded the locomotive warning horn at the ‘whistle board’ and commenced sounding it again when he observed the truck making its left-turn into Millewa Road. The locomotive collided with the rearward end of the second trailer of the B-Double, detaching it from its turntable assembly (5th wheel) and rotating it through approximately 160 degrees to deposit it close to the train and perpendicular to it.
