The train driver found the car about 6pm, with early indications that the crash may have happened hours before.

The spokesman said the driver was believed to be a man in his 20s, but identification and family contact had not yet been established.

Marian Police and emergency services are currently on scene, just north of Silk Mechanical and Vanderfield Mackay near the intersection of Pentecost Rd at Hampden.

Anyone with information about the crash that could assist police, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
