Van caught on campus crossing
The engineer described it as “splendid”
A van got stuck as the barriers came down on a railway line going through Lincoln’s campus yesterday at 2pm.
The Cannon Hygiene van got trapped by one of the barriers, which stuck in the side of the vehicle.
The driver was unable to move his van as the crossing lights came on due to a car in front of him.
A goods train had to be consequently halted as result of the incident, and a passenger train in Lincoln Central station was also delayed.
Students watched on in confusion, and amongst the chaos someone managed to add a little promotional advertising to the van.
Journalism student Danyal Khan said: “I got there after the incident happened and I was very confused.”
“I think I saw the driver and he looked devastated with what happened.”
“Everyone else seemed more impatient about crossing the tracks than the actual incident.”
