Here's an Idea - Stay off the Tracks
Never in the history of rail travel has a train been cited for being where it wasn't supposed to be. Trespassers, on the other hand......:
- Two people were killed when they were hit by aMetratrain on the border between Little Village and Lawndale this evening, authorities said.
The female and male were struck by the train near 21st Street and Homan Avenue about 4:50 p.m. and pronounced dead on the scene, said Police News Affairs Officer Thomas Sweeney. A woman at the scene who identified herself as the sister of both victims said they had been looking for scrap metal on the tracks at the time they were hit by the train.
The two regularly searched for scrap metal on the railroad embankment, the woman said.
Darwin strikes again.
