A westbound CP intermodal container train contacted a 19-year-old female pedestrian while she walked westbound on CP’s main line through Banff. The female was believed to be wearing ear buds at the time of the incident which may have contributed to failing to hear the approaching train. The female was pronounced deceased at the scene, and a RCMP Collision Reconstructionist was consulted.

The line is now clear.
