Metra Train Hits and Kills Woman

A woman from Des Plaines, Illinois was killed when she was hit by a Metra train near the Edgebrook station in Chicago, Illinois Monday evening. Additionally, a separate incident on the Brown Line of the CTA left a woman seriously injured after being struck by the ‘El.’ The Metra death was being investigated as a suicide, but the results of the autopsy performed Tuesday have not yet revealed whether suicide was the motive. The Brown Line victim was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and classified as in serious-to-critical condition. To read more about either incident click here.
