Pedestrian struck and killed by train in Rimouski

Police in Québec say a 35-year-old man is dead after being struck by a train in Rimouski early Monday.

Sûreté du Québec says the area was locked down for about three hours while it investigated.

As a result, Via Rail's Marium Diaby says the train running from Québec through New Brunswick is running about 4.5 hours behind schedule.

The company is asking travellers to double-check their departure time.
