A CPS tweet, published at around 9:15 am on Wednesday, May 16, stated that the pedestrian had suffered serious injuries and that traffic would be closed around the area for several hours while law enforcement investigates.

Just under half an hour later, CPS released an update stating that the pedestrian had succumbed to their injuries.

A tweet from Calgary Transit states that the CTrain will not be in service between Whitehorn and McKnight Stations due to the accident and that there is instead a shuttle bus in operation between the two stations.
