The mum-to-be, who was nine months pregnant, was driving over a railway crossing with her husband on Saturday when the train struck their car, spinning it into a ditch.

She was airlifted to hospital with minor head injuries where she later gave birth. “The baby is healthy and doing fine, I was told it weighed over 8lbs,” said Sergeant Leone who was at the scene.

The woman’s husband and proud new dad was equally lucky and also only suffered minor injuries.
