A train driver is in a critical condition after he was struck by a large piece of masonry which smashed through his cab window.
The driver, 56, suffered serious head and face injuries after being struck as he drove a freight train through Worcestershire on Sunday morning.
He was taken to the Royal Worcester Hospital where he remains.
Transport police said they are treating the incident as suspicious although they are not ruling anything out.
The train was travelling between Llanwern and Brierley Hill when the masonry crashed through the windscreen in Kidderminster.
Chf Insp Allan Gregory of British Transport Police said: "The train travelled underneath three bridges - Chester Road North, Offmore Lane and Comberton Hill (A448), before it came to a standstill.
"We are appealing to the public to come forward if they saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area.
"This is a serious incident that has left a train driver badly injured. At this stage we are not ruling out anything."
There are worries that the driver may not recover.
What drives someone to do this to a fellow human being?
