November 28, 2021

The Bonners Ferry Police Department and Idaho State Police are investigating a Union Pacific (UP) train versus pedestrian collision that proved fatal and occurred in the early evening hours of November 26 near the fairgrounds.

The UP train was traveling southbound on their mainline track at about 6:09 p.m. when a 33 year old male ran across the tracks and into the train's path.

Though not yet complete, early conclusion of the investigation suggests the collision was accidental.

Positive identity of the 33-year-old victim has been made and next of kin are in the process of being notified. Additional details will be available upon completion of the investigation.
