The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above
I was at this crossing recently and took these photos of a train passing by at speed:-
The Crescent Road level crossing is about half way between Birkdale and Hillside Stations so the trains are always going at some speed when the barriers are down to road traffic. Makes you wonder how this accident came about so the results of the accident investigation will make interesting reading.
Thank goodness no one was hurt.
