Lucky Escape For Mobility Scooter Man
A man on a mobility scooter has escaped with minor injuries after he was in collision with a train earlier this morning (Monday 25 July).
The East of England Ambulance Service were called to a level crossing on Church Street in Kelvedon at 11.06am.
Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “We believe the man was struck on the level crossing on a mobility scooter and amazingly received minor injuries.
Following assessments by paramedics, he was taken to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford.”
The fire service also attended the scene.
Station Officer John Harris said: "The incident involved a man in his forties in a mobility scooter.
"Somehow he ended up the wrong side of the barrier and a train traveling at around 100mph clipped the front of his scooter.
"The man sustained what appeared to be minor injuries, certainly nothing that appeared to be life threatening. The man was extremely lucky, if he had been only a couple of inches further forward he would have undoubtedly been killed."
Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
