A 14-year-old girl was taken to the Alberta Children’s Hospital on Monday after being struck by a train at the Sunnyside LRT station in Calgary.
The Calgary Police Service said patrol officers came across the aftermath of the collision between the CTrain and the pedestrian near 2 Avenue N.W. and 9A Street N.W. at 7 p.m.
“The pedestrian was at a crosswalk, but at the time the train was coming through, the pedestrian was on the train tracks — we’re not sure why at this point,” said Acting Sgt. Jason Van Dorp.
