Man hit and killed by Melbourne train, city services thrown into chaos

TRAINS have ground to a halt in Melbourne after a man was struck and killed in the City Loop.

The man, who is yet to be identified, died instantly after being run over by a train near Flagstaff station around 2:40pm local time.

Emergency services are still on the scene.


Passengers are urged to make alternate travel arrangements if possible, with three of the city’s busiest train lines – The Alamein, Glen Waverley and Lilydale lines – suspended and unable to travel through the loop.

Delays are also affecting trains on the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Frankston lines.
