The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating an incident at a railway yard in Montreal on Wednesday that left one employee dead.
A spokesperson for the TSB told Global News it happened at 12: 50 p.m. in the Pointe-Saint-Charles yard, belonging to the Canadian National Railway.
The TSB has dispatched an investigator to the scene to “gather information and assess the occurrence.”
The independent agency is tasked with investigating air, marine, pipeline and rail transportation incidents in a bid to improve transportation safety.
“It is not the function of the board to assign fault or determine civil or criminal liability,” the TSB said in a statement.
The TSB said it expects to have more details in connection with the circumstances leading to the workers death in the coming days.
