A 14-year-old girl was taken to the Alberta Children's Hospital on Monday after being struck by a train at the Sunnyside LRT station in Calgary.

The Calgary Police Service said patrol officers came across the aftermath of the collision between the CTrain and the pedestrian near 2 Avenue N.W. and 9A Street N.W. at 7 p.m.

"The pedestrian was at a crosswalk, but at the time the train was coming through, the pedestrian was on the train tracks — we're not sure why at this point," said Acting Sgt. Jason Van Dorp.

Police called EMS and the Calgary Fire Department to the scene.

The girl was taken to hospital in non-life-threatening, stable condition, according to police and EMS.

Train service along the Red Line LRT was disrupted for about an hour and a half.

The CPS Traffic Section has taken over the investigation.

LRT outage slows travel for New Year's Eve party crowds .
On an evening when thousands of people left cars at home and took transit to parties and bars, LRT service broke down east of downtown for more than two hours. As of 10:30 p.m., replacement R1 buses were still carrying passengers between Parliament and Hurdman stations. A stopped train near the University of Ottawa was identified by Twitter users as the cause. Earlier, there had been another breakdown between the St. Laurent and Blair stations, but that was resolved in the early evening. O-Train Line 1: Regular service has resumed between St-Laurent and Blair and continues to operate between Parliament and Tunney’s Pasture.
