A pedestrian has been injured after being hit by a train this morning.

It is understood that the person was running across the tracks between Wetton and Lansdowne.

This is third incident in the past 24 hours.

Yesterday afternoon, a 12 year old boy was struck by a train while crossing the tracks between Bontheuwel and Lavistown Stations.

Less than two hours after that, it is believed that a man committed suicide by sitting on the railway tracks underneath a bridge near du Toit’s station in Stellenbosch.

Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott says the rail line between Wetton and Landsdowne is closed due to the incident.
