DENVER — Denver Police are investigating a fatal crash between an RTD light rail train and a pedestrian Saturday morning just north of the Alameda Station.

Denver Police tweeted that the crash led to the death of the pedestrian.

According to RTD, police have cleared the area and trains are now running normally and the bus bridge was terminated. Delays should be expected for the next hour as trains get back to their correct time points.

The incident occurred on the southbound D Line in the area of West Bayaud Avenue. 

According to RTD, due to mechanical issues on the central Light Rail alignment, there was no train service between the I-25 and Broadway Station and the 10th/Osage Station.

Bus service was in place between those two stations, RTD said. There was train service available from 10th/Osage to the downtown area.

Denver Police said there were no road closures.
