ST. PAUL -- A woman was struck and killed by a Green Line train Thursday morning near University and Hamline avenues in St. Paul, less than a week after another train-pedestrian accident on the line.

Thursday’s collision happened just after 11 a.m. at a pedestrian crossing at Albert Street, just west of the Hamline Avenue Station platform, according to Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla.

The woman was running south across the tracks when an eastbound train hit her.

Thursday’s fatality remains under investigation.

The woman’s identity will be released by the Ramsey County medical examiner.

Thursday’s incident marked the 11th pedestrian accident - the third fatal - along the Green Line since train testing began in April 2014.

The most recent accident was last Friday, when Nicholas John Chapman, 25, of St. Paul was injured about 2 p.m. at Snelling and University avenues. Investigators believe he was walking against traffic and signals, Padilla said Monday. Chapman remains in critical condition.
