Fatal pedestrian collision at 39 Avenue CTrain Station
We continue to investigate a fatal collision between a CTrain and a pedestrian that occurred yesterday morning.
At approximately 11 a.m., on Thursday, March 24, 2022, a CTrain was stopped in the southbound tracks of the 39 Avenue Station. A 29-year-old male pedestrian crossed the tracks between the train couplers, that connect train cars, from the east side platform toward the west side platform.
As the train began to move, the man became pinned between the moving train and the platform edge.
He was transported to hospital in critical condition where he was pronounced deceased shortly after arrival.
The train driver and passengers were not injured as a result of the collision and Calgary Transit brought in buses to transport train passengers.
