Edmonton Alberta - A 22-year-old pedestrian had earbuds in when he was fatally struck by an LRT train Friday, Edmonton police said.
The police major collision investigation section investigated the collision at 115A Street and 60 Avenue around noon Friday and determined the death to be accidental, police said in an email just after 15:00, Friday.
"This is a very unfortunate accident and very tragic for his family," Sgt. Rick Evans of the major collision investigation unit said in a follow-up news release.
"Investigations reveal that after stopping for the eastbound train to pass, he didn't hear the westbound LRT when walking in the crossing and walked into its path."
It was reported by witnesses that the man was crossing northbound in a marked LRT pedestrian crossing, said police.
City buses replaced LRT service between South Campus and Century Park stations as officers investigated.
