SES crews were called in last night to help search for the body.
11.00pm Tuesday, July 17
EMERGENCY services are near a railway crossing in the Carrs Peninsular/Junction Hill area after a reported train incident.
Early reports are suggesting a pedestrian may have been hit by a train.
The train is pulled up at Broad St and a Daily Examiner reporter was on scene.
Emergency services personnel confirmed the driver of the train, which was travelling South, believed he struck a person.
They are searching land around the train line and have called in the SES to help but with a 200 metre area to search in the dark, it could take a while.
We have asked Grafton Police to contact us with further details later and will update this site if and when we find out more.
