Emergency services are at the scene of a serious crash between a train and a car at a level crossing at Mallala, north of Adelaide.
The crash occurred just after 3:00pm, just south of the town, about 60 kilometres north of Adelaide.
Police have closed the main Mallala to Two Wells Road to all traffic.
Major Crash investigators are making their way to the scene.
The Australian Rail Track Corporation said it was a Pacific National freight train heading from Perth to Melbourne.
It said the crash happened at the Old Dublin Road level crossing, which has a stop sign rather than boom gates.
A Pacific National spokeswoman said one of the company's freight trains was involved in an incident at a level crossing near Two Wells.
"Emergency services are on the scene and the incident will be subject to investigation," she said.
Meanwhile, a driver has been left unconscious after his vehicle hit a tree at Highbury, in Adelaide's north-east.
The man in his 30s was thrown from the car.
Lower North East Road is closed in both directions near its intersection with Paradise Grove.
And a cyclist who was hit by a car near Strathalbyn on Tuesday has died.
The crash happened about 6:30am on Nine Mile Road, in Willyaroo.
The 44-year-old Strathalbyn woman was taken to the Flinders Medical Centre but died this morning.
