TORONTO — A woman is dead after being hit by a freight train in Mississauga, Ont., Friday morning.

Peel Regional Police say an adult woman was struck by the train around 6 a.m. in the area of Dundas Street East and Cawthra Road near Cooksville GO Station.

Police say she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Metrolinx, the provincial agency that manages GO Transit, says a person GO service was interrupted due to the investigation on the train tracks.

The agency says train service has resumed on the Milton GO line after being held while police investigated.
