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.
