Two train crew were injured when they jumped from a runaway train in Fife last month, accident investigators revealed today. The incident happened after the DB Cargo train's brakes were damaged when it hit a fallen 1ft-thick tree branch and ran away for four miles. The driver and a colleague suffered 'minor injuries' when they jumped from the train as it started to roll backwards, the UK Government's Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) reported.
