Via Rail delays after CN train hits vehicle
By The Canadian Press
TRENTON, Ont. - Via Rail says service is resuming after a fatal crash between a CN freight train and a vehicle in eastern Ontario.
The vehicle's driver was killed in the crash that happened at about 10 a.m. just west of Trenton, Ont.
Via Rail spokeswoman Mylene Belanger says passengers on lines linking Toronto to Ottawa and Montreal are facing delays.
She says six trains that use the routes are delayed between 30 minutes and 3 1/2 hours.
Belanger adds the trains that left their destinations in the early hours of the morning are affected the most.
She says other passengers should no longer expect significant delays as the tracks where the collision happened are now open.
Jim Feeny of CN Rail says the crossing lights and gates were functioning at the time of the collision.
He says there were no injuries on the freight train or any damage done to the train, which was travelling from Montreal to Toronto and had two locomotives and 161 cars.
Quinte West fire Chief John Whalen says the driver of the passenger vehicle was pronounced dead on the scene.
Ontario Provincial Police say the driver was a 29-year-old man from Quinte West.
Whalen adds there were no other people in the vehicle and firefighters were working to extricate the man's body from the car.
