WINNIPEG – Motorists are being warned to stay away from the Waverley Street rail crossing after a pedestrian was struck by a train this afternoon.

Winnipeg police Const. Jason Michalyshen said a pedestrian was struck by an eastbound CN Rail freight train around 3 p.m. One person was rushed to hospital in critical condition, he said.

More than a dozen police officers are searching the tracks behind the Reh-Fit Centre at 1390 Taylor Ave. for the victim’s personal items. Some officers were crawling under the stopped train to look for evidence.

Both northbound and southbound traffic is closed at the crossing just south of Taylor Avenue.
