The investigation into a man's death after being struck by a train on September 11th has concluded.

Final details have been confirmed when in an investigation into a train crash in Stony Plain earlier this month.

Parkland RCMP say a man was killed when he purposely moved himself onto the tracks, and was hit by a train at around 4 pm on September 11th. Out of respect for the family involved, the victim is not being publicly identified.

VIA Rail says it was Train #4 traveling between Vancouver and Edmonton that was involved, and that none of its passengers and crew were injured as a result of the incident.

The train was late arriving in Edmonton by nearly four hours due to the collision.
