We’re just getting word on this now—but police say a 71-year old man was killed when the scooter he was driving–was hit by a train in Camrose Sunday night.
Police say witnesses told them the crossing lights were flashing–the bell was going off—and the train was blowing its horn—but it wasnt able to stop in time.
They’re still investigating.
