Darwin has been lurking around Christchurch this week looking for the next candidate to join the team, and he wasn’t let down.
“A Christchurch man has died after being hit by a train.
The 26-year-old was struck about 10.15pm at Lincoln Rd yesterday while he was trying to cross, police said this morning.
Emergency services attended the scene and Lincoln Rd was closed for about three hours while a scene examination was conducted.
Police said the controlled barrier arms were engaged at the time, and inquiries were continuing.
It appeared the man had been trying to outrun the train, a spokesman said.” - sourceĀ
