Winnipeg police say a woman died on Monday after being struck by a train near Union Station downtown.

Police were called to the 200 block of Stradbrook Avenue at around 3:54 a.m. and located a deceased 38-year-old woman.

Police say the woman, a Winnipeg resident, was walking on the railroad track when she was struck by a moving freight train which didn’t have enough time to avoid the collision.

The deceased has been identified, and notifications have been made.

The incident is deemed accidental, and no arrests are anticipated.
