With so many safety measures already in place, maybe they need to think differently. How about ways to protect trains from cars and pedestrians?

Lets wait and see what happened. Doesn't matter, someone was killed. I believe it happened about in the same area someone committed suicide a few years back. Thank goodness kids are off of school and it wasn't one walking to tracks to school.

Obama has this on his agenda for next week, right after he finishes skeet shooting.

This person died as a result of being struck by a Metra commuter train while trespassing on railroad property. This individual exercised extremely poor judgement by being on those railroad tracks, and paid for his mistake with his life.

Anyone heard the victims name yet? My fear is that this may have been a suicide. There have been several over the years in that spot.

I remember the one that happened a few years ago. It happened right by house and I saw the aftermath and it still haunts me to this day. It always makes me sad to hear about people getting hit.:(

It was very sad and I don't think the persons name is important. What is important is that a family lost a loved one and they need your prayers. Please respect the family and let them grieve in peace.

Thank you

I've been hit by 17 trains over the past 6 years and I've derailed 5 of those 6. People who die to trains are wussies.

Sadly it wasn't an accident. It as a young man in his early 20's and it's a very hard time for the family with many unanswered questions.

Now that you know who it is will you send the family your condolences or attend the services?

So sorry for this young man and his family. Also for the engineer of this train. He must be very traumatized as well. Suicide is never a good option. It affects so many people.
