The incident happened on St Jude Street in Avondale.

According to police, the driver got their vehicle stuck on the tracks after the barriers arms had come down.

"Fortunately the vehicle was not hit by the train but I understand the driver has suffered a medical event and is being transported to hospital in a moderate condition," a police spokesperson said.

Train services on the Western Line were suspended as workers removed the vehicle, but they have now resumed.
