DENVER — A cyclist was hit and killed by a Regional Transportation District A Line train Friday afternoon.

The crash happened at Quebec Street and Smith Road at around 2:30 pm.

Denver Police said the cyclist was killed in the collision.

Police said their preliminary investigation showed that the cyclist was crossing the tracks against the train gates at the intersection.

RTD said shuttle buses are ferrying A Line riders between the Central Park and the 40th and Colorado stations.
