Mark Harding, the husband of Jane Harding, who was killed by a train in Herefordshire in 2010 has told ITV News Central that the accident 'could and should have been prevented'.
Signalman Adrian Maund, 42, and Network Rail have been found guilty of breaching health and safety rules after Mr Maund mistakenly raised the level crossing barriers after becoming distracted by a phone call.
The train smashed into the car at 61mph and dragged the vehicle 150 yards down the track.
Mrs Harding was a passenger at the time of the crash. Mark escaped unharmed.
Adrian Maund is due to be sentenced on April 10th 2013.
