Bahamian woman struck and killed by train in Canada




A Bahamian woman working and living in Canada died when she was struck by a train.


Attempts to identify her were unsuccessful in the days after her tragic death. It prompted Toronto police to reach out to the public for help and share a picture of a heart-shaped tattoo on her right shoulder.


The woman was later identified as Bahamian national Judith Taylor.


On September 7, Toronto police received a report of a gruesome incident near the area of Weston Road and Black Creek Drive.


A UP Express train was heading east at the location when it struck Taylor who was on the rail line.


Shortly after 6am, emergency crews were called to the scene where she was pronounced dead.


The Toronto Police Service said Taylor’s death will be treated as suspicious and their preliminary investigation report will be completed by the end of this week.


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in conjunction with the Bahamas High Commission in Ottawa will facilitate the transportation of Taylor’s remains from Toronto to New Providence.
