Two pedestrians were struck and killed by a Link light rail train in South Seattle.

Seattle police said the train hit the pedestrians while they were crossing in a crosswalk during a “Don’t Walk” signal.

At 6:20 p.m. police were notified of the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Alaska Street.

Officials at the scene reported that two people had to be taken out from under a light rail car.

A 76-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene while a 66-year-old man was admitted to Harborview Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

All lanes of traffic at the intersections were shut, and drivers in the area were informed to find an alternate route of travel, according to the Seattle Department of Transportation.
