CN employee dies in work accident

A 34-year-old CN rail worker was killed Sunday evening at the Taschereau Switching Yard in the city's west end.

The man was crushed between two train cars at around 9 p.m. It appears he was at the controls of one of them and attempted to perform a reverse maneuver when the train went off the rails.

He was pronounced dead on the scene by paramedics.

The work accident took place on federal land, so the federal labour department will handle the investigation.

More to come.

    No words could ever define how my heart goes out to the Wards, Ethan and Rosie, friends, family. Shan, if I could be a friendly hand upon yours, I reach out over the miles and rest it there. Thinking of you all.
