Metra trains between Harvard and Chicago were delayed Sunday after a pedestrian was struck and killed by an outbound train northwest of downtown Palatine.
Metra confirmed that a pedestrian was hit by train number 713 about 3:30 p.m. at Baldwin Road, between the Palatine and Barrington stations.
That train was scheduled to arrive in Harvard at 4:20 p.m. and then turn around for Chicago at 4:35 p.m. as train number 722. The train will be late because the equipment is still stopped at the location of the accident. Trains were running again about 6:15 p.m., but about 30 minutes late, Metra said.
The identity of the pedestrian has not been disclosed.
