Tanker Driver Admits To Rail Crash Charges

A tanker driver has today admitted causing rail passengers safety to be endagered after a train crash which left 21 people injured back in August.

It happened in Little Cornard near Sudbury in Suffolk when a train collided with a sewage tanker on a level crossing on August 17th.

38-year-old Lithuanian man Aryvdas Bartasius from Hawthorn Close in Littleport in Ely pleaded guilty to endagering railway passengers by unlawful act at Ipswich Crown Court. He will now be sentenced next month.

The 1731 National Express East Anglia service, which was carrying about 20 passengers and thought to have been travelling at between 50mph and 60mph, cut the tanker in two as it made its way from Sudbury, Suffolk, to Marks Tey, Essex, police said at the time.
