91-year-old man Killed in Freight Train Crash

Metra trains were temporarily halted in the Chicago west suburbs after a freight train struck a vehicle and killed its 91-year-old driver. The line runs between Aurora and Chicago’s Union Station stopped after the collision near Cass and Burlington Avenues in Westmont. The man was killed in the train accident when the train slammed into his silver sedan on the tracks. His car was dragged down the tracks past the Westmont passenger platform in the train crash. Trains began operating approximately two hours after, but many were delayed following the train accident. While the investigation continues, no wrongful death lawsuits have been filed.
