Commute stalls after woman hit by CTrain in south Calgary

CALGARY- Traffic grinded to a halt during the busy commute home on Tuesday, after a woman was hit by a CTrain.

It happened around 4:30 p.m., near the 39 Ave. station.

Witnesses told Global News that the victim ignored the warning lights before walking right into the path of an approaching train. It’s believed that she was wearing headphones at the time.

The woman was rushed to hospital in non life-threatening condition.

The incident led to traffic delays around Macleod Trail and downtown, and a portion of the train line was shut down. It has since been reopened.
