A man was this morning hit by a train which was on its way to Strand while he was trespassing into the rail reserve, and he died immediately. 

Metrorail Regional Manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz said at the same time the accident was witnessed by another driver who was driving to Bellville and he was so traumatized that the train was delayed by 20 to 30 minutes while waiting for a relief driver to take over the train.

Swartz urged people to stay away from the railway lines as any incident causes delays to workers and learners, more especially now that the learners are writing exams, they can not afford to be late for their classes.

He further appealed to commuters to ensure that they cross at designated areas.
