KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Members of a CP Rail train crew are being offered counselling after a tragic early morning accident on the CP main line through a Kamloops, B.C., suburb.
CP Rail spokesman Kevin Hersak says a westbound freight train was travelling through the Dallas area of Kamloops, about 350 kilometres northeast of Vancouver.
He says the crew saw what appeared to be a person lying on the tracks.
The victim could not be roused and there was no way to stop the train in time.
The collision occurred just after 4:30 a.m., on Thursday.
Officials are now trying to identify the victim and determine why that person was on the tracks. (CHNL)
