Level crossing crash: Van driver Daniel Bellis jailed
A driver whose van was hit on a level crossing by a train when he failed to call ahead to check if the line was clear has been jailed for five months.
Daniel Bellis, 35, from Oswestry, Shropshire, admitted endangering the safety of people on the railway.
The judge at Mold Crown Court told him he gambled with lives on the crossing near Carno, Powys, on 16 February.
Bellis was also banned from driving for a year after the collision on the Shrewsbury to Machynlleth line.
