Appeal to Outstanding Passengers
Halton Regional Police are appealing to any outstanding passengers who were onboard the Via rail train during Sunday’s incident, and who may have departed the scene by means of private transportation, to contact police.
Investigators are in possession of the passenger manifest and would like to ensure the condition and current location of those passengers. All passengers taken to area hospitals or who received treatment at the scene have been noted and reconciled with the manifest. However the current whereabouts of approximately one dozen passengers is unknown as they left the scene using their own mode of transportation.
Passengers in this category may contact Halton Regional Police investigators at ext. 5065.
