NORTHBROOK — An Amtrak train fatally struck a pedestrian Thursday afternoon near the Northbrook train stop.

The Fire Department and rescue workers responding to the accident at the station near Shermer Rd. and Meadow also checked for any injuries on the train.

Metra says riders should still expect delays, as trains are moving at restricted speeds as they pass through Northbrook. For the most up-to-date information, visit Metra’s website.
