Pedestrian killed by A Line commuter train

RTD said A Line trains began running again at around 3:15 p.m. Sunday.

DENVER — A pedestrian was hit and killed by an A Line train on Sunday around the intersection of Smith Road and Monaco Street Parkway, Denver Police said.

The crash caused delays for A Line passengers, a Regional Transportation District (RTD) spokesperson told 9NEWS. Shuttle buses ferried people between Union and Peoria stations for hours Sunday, RTD said.

A Line service was restarted at 3:15 p.m. when the first train departed Union Station toward Denver International Airport. RTD said trains were expected to get back onto their normal schedule during the 4 p.m. hour.

The intersection of Monaco Street Parkway and Smith Road was closed while police investigated the crash. 

On Monday, Denver Police said the person who was hit "intentionally got in front of the train."

The person's identity will be released by the Denver Medical Examiner's Office at a later date.
