LANGLEY, B.C. – Police say a couple died after their car was beaten with a train to Langley, B.C.
Staff Sgt. David Brown, with Langley's RCN, says that the incident occurred on Sunday morning at a crossroads that sees a frequent train traffic.
He says investigators are still trying to figure out how the car ended up in the tracks between two traffic weapons that prevent vehicles from approaching when a train arrives.
Brown says that the vehicle was dragged by "a certain distance" by a train of the CN in a route of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
He said the police came to seek the couple in medical trouble and administered CPR, but both died at the scene.
CN spokesman Jonathan Abecassis says that the CN and CP rail police are helping RCMP with the investigation.
"Our thoughts are with those affected by this incident," he said in a statement.
