Bicyclist Killed by Metra Train in Hanover Park.

The Daily Herald reports that a Metra train hit and killed a bicyclist on Monday, June 25. The victim, who officials estimate is around 30-years-old, was crossing the tracks when he was struck near the train station platform in Hanover Park.  The Daily Herald initially reported that a Metra spokesman had claimed the bicyclist attempted to ride across the pedestrian crossing while its lights and bells were activated.  However, the Herald later retracted the Metra spokesman’s comment, stating in an Editor’s Note that “there are no lights or gates at this pedestrian intersection.”  Click here to read the Herald’s article.
