7.30am Wednesday update:

GRAFTON police have confirmed a male died last night after being hit by a train near a railway crossing in the Carrs Peninsular/Junction Hill area.

Inspector Murray Gillett this morning confirmed a male, who is yet to be formally identified, appeared to have stood in front of a train and as a result of the impact, died at the scene just after 10pm last night.

"A number of people are being formally interviewed and the standard testing is being conducted on the drivers," he said.

"There will be a formal identification and then we will be notifying the relatives."

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.
