It was on Monday night, that a young man was killed on the GO Train tracks under the Dundas Street Bridge, near Soraruren Avenue. We now know a little more about the victim.
17-year old Tyler Bailey was killed in what police call "a tragic accident that could have been avoided."
The teen was hanging out with a few other friends around 7 p.m. that evening, when police say a train began to approach. His friend called for Bailey to move, but he stumbled onto the tracks where he was hit by a northbound train on the Kitchener GO line.
Along with accounts from witnesses, his death was determined to be an accident.
The teenager loved riding his scooter and frequently attended a skate park in Etobicoke. His friend, Michael Punkris says he was an outgoing person who loved to ride and aspired to have a career in carpentry someday.
Police said they would not release Bailey's name to the public, but friends confirmed his identity on Tuesday.
