PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – One woman is lucky to be alive after being struck by a train near downtown Prince George last night.

On Monday evening at approximately 9:00, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a person that had been struck by a train near 1st Avenue and Dominion Street.

Police and other emergency services arrived at the scene where they located woman under a locomotive in the CN Rail yard. The 46 year-old woman was removed and taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, and is expected to make a full recovery.
