A cyclist has died in a collision at the railway crossing in Wezemaal, Flemish Brabant. Train traffic has been at a standstill since the accident.

Infrabel received a report at 8:30 PM that a fatal collision had occurred with a cyclist. “According to a witness statement, the barriers went down,” says spokesman Thomas Baeken. “The witness heard a heavy crash, which may have been the person’s collision. We cannot currently say whether it was an act of desperation or an accident. We are still waiting for more information. According to the initial findings, the barriers functioned well.”

Train traffic between Leuven and Aarschot has been at a standstill since the accident. Traffic is diverted and NMBS introduced replacement buses. BRT police, the fire brigade, an ambulance and a MUG also arrived on the scene.

In mid-March, Infrabel sounded the alarm after images showed a woman with a pram and a motorcyclist crossing a closed railway crossing in Wetteren. A day later, a motorcyclist was seriously injured in Zulte after he ignored the closed barriers and red lights. In February, the railway manager launched a campaign against railway running.
