The car was crossing the line in Chatel-St-Denis when the train smashed into it and dragged it 30 meters.

The car occupants - including the 4 and 9-year-old children - were seriously injured and helicoptered to hospital.

The crossing doesn’t have barriers, but the lights and warning sounds were active at the time.
