This isn’t the first incident involving a CTrain colliding with a pedestrian this year, nor the deadliest, as an elderly woman was killed in the spring after being struck by a CTrain on the morning of May 16.

The previous incident occurred just north of Whitehorn CTrain Station, three stops south of Saddletowne Station according to a map from Calgary Transit.
