A person was struck and killed by a Metra train in the western suburbs Tuesday evening, officials said.
About 6:30 p.m., UP/West train no. 55 fatally struck a person between the Wheaton and Winfield stations, said Metra spokesman Tom Miller.
The person’s age and gender were not immediately known.
Trains were stopped for about 90 minutes, but began moving again about 8 p.m. with some delays, Miller added.
