Selection of images and a video from the train and truck incident in Abbotts Rd Dandenong South from Saturday 3 November.

Incident Controller Shaun McRoberts from Hallam brigade co-ordinated crews with Station Officer Brett Sleep from Dandenong Brigade as the Rescue Commander working with rescue operators from Langwarrin & Dandenong.

With live high voltage power lines lying all over the place, crews had to be careful with the rescue of patients and the placement of cutting gear.

The area beside the track was soft with mud and water which hampered rescue operations with it seeping into the over-turned leading carriage.

CFA have now cleared the scene and left it in the hands of police.
