A 64-year-old man is dead after he was struck by a freight train in East Edmonton on Monday before 10:30 p.m.
In a news release, Edmonton Police describe the man as a pedestrian, and say their investigation shows he was hit by an eastbound freight train near 50th Street and Sherwood Park Freeway, which describes where the Canadian Pacific Lambton Park rail yard is located.
His body was discovered by rail workers when the train returned westbound.
EPS major collisions unit collaborated with Canadian Pacific Railway investigators. No charges will be laid, as the death has been deemed non-criminal, police said.
