On November 15th, 2019 at approximately 3:07 pm Fort Collins Police Services received a report of a female being struck by a train near the intersection of W. Mulberry St. and S. Mason St.
A BNSF Railway train was stopped northbound along the railroad tracks on N. Mason St. when a 72-year-old female pedestrian was attempting to cross over the train when it began to move. The female was struck by the locomotive and transported to Medical Center of the Rockies with serious injuries.
Members of the Fort Collins Police Services CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team and BNSF personnel responded to investigate the collision. Investigators do not believe speed is a factor in the case.
The train blocked multiple intersections along the rail line in north Fort Collins for approximately 1 hour while the incident was being investigated.
Anyone with additional information should contact FCPS Officer Ken Koski at 970-416-2229.
