A man was killed after another accident involving a Metra Rock Island main line train and a person on Vincennes Avenue in the Beverly area.
According to Metra officials, a cyclist was struck by a train at about 8 p.m. on July 17, at 102nd Place.
The engineer, officials said, reported that he saw an adult male on a bicycle crossing as the outbound train approached.
The engineer blew the horn, as the cyclist did not appear to see or hear the train approaching.
The cyclist continued past the downed gates, and the engineer engaged the emergency brakes.
From evidence gathered at the scene, officials said, the cyclist appears to have struck the side of the train.
The Chicago Fire Department (CFD) and Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office responded to the scene; the CFD has not yet returned a message seeking comment.
In late June, three people, including a 5-year-old, were killed when their vehicle was struck by a train at 107th and Vincennes.
Officials said witnesses reported that the vehicle drove around other vehicles that were stopped, then drove around safety gates before being struck.
Essence Ransberry, a 5-year-old girl, was killed, as was Joneisha Ransberry, 38. The identity of the other victim has not been released. There were 41 passengers on the train, and a conductor and operator were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
In the more recent accident, officials said, 67 people were on the train, with no reported injuries.
