Police Looking to ID Man Struck and Killed by GO Train in Milton
A man is dead after he was struck by a GO train in Milton but the circumstances aren’t suspicious.
The victim is an adult male in his mid to late 20s, say investigators from the Halton police collision reconstruction unit, who are trying to identify the man.
The incident took place on Nov. 14 just east of the Milton GO station shortly before 7:30 p.m.
The man was hit by a train coming in from Toronto’s Union Station, said Metrolinx spokesperson Scott Money.
Trains along GO Transit’s Milton line were halted.
“Unfortunately, the passengers had to remain on the train until the investigation was done,” said Money, adding there were roughly 200 people on board.
Passengers on the next incoming train saw their trip end at Lisgar station in Mississauga, said Money, and they were shuttled to Milton on buses.
Investigators are asking concerned family members who may be missing someone fitting this description to contact either the on-duty Milton Staff Sgt. at 905-825-4747 ext. 2410 or the collision reconstruction unit at 905-825-4747 ext. 5065.
Regular service for GO trains in Milton resumed on Wednesday morning.
