A female pedestrian was struck and killed by a Metra UP Northwest train Wednesday morning in Arlington Heights.
Susan Dattilo, 50, was hit by the train about 6 a.m. near the railroad crossing at Ridge and Northwest Highway, Arlington Heights police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
She was pronounced dead about 10 minutes later, the medical examiner’s office said.
Inbound and outbound trains on the Northwest line were halted past Des Plaines, Metra said. Extensive delays lasted at least four hours after the incident.
