As a consequence of the collision the second and third locomotives and 41 of the train's 64 wagons were derailed. The driver of the truck was fatally injured.

The investigation found that the truck was not being driven in accordance with the conditions of reduced visibility that existed at the time and that the level crossing approach signage and sighting distances were not in accordance with the relevant standards. The investigation also found that the truck driver may have been experiencing a degree of fatigue that could have affected his driving performance.
