(St. Paul, MN) -- A female pedestrian is dead after being struck by a Green Line light-rail train in St. Paul. The accident happened late Sunday morning near the Westgate Station. The unidentified victim was struck by an eastbound train as she was walking across in the crosswalk. Police believe the woman may have been wearing headphones which could have prevented her from hearing the warning signals. The incident is the first fatality since the Green Line opened in June.
