Police investigate early morning CTrain collision

We continue to investigate a fatal collision involving a CTrain and a pedestrian that took place early this morning at the Erlton/Stampede station.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. today, Friday, March 3, 2023, we were called to the Erlton/Stampede station for reports of a serious-injury collision between a pedestrian and a CTrain. Upon arrival, we located a man deceased.

It is believed that at the time of the collision, the pedestrian was crossing the tracks at the southern crossing, when it appears he slipped and fell.
