A 71-year-old man was killed Sunday when a mobility device he was driving was struck by a train at a rail crossing in Camrose.
Camrose Police Service said the senior was struck by an eastbound Canadian Pacific train at a crossing in the city at about 8:45 p.m.
Police received several 911 calls about the collision and responded along with fire crews, paramedics and rail police.
“Witnesses confirm that the signal crossing lights were flashing, the audible bell was sounding and the train sounded its horn, but was unable to avoid striking the man,” police said in a statement posted to their website.
The collision remains under investigation and the identity of the man was not being released Monday as family were still being notified.
Camrose is about 90 km southeast of Edmonton.
