A high school student from Westmont died after being struck by an Amtrak train Thursday on Chicago's Northwest Side.

Amtrak Hiawatha line train 332 struck the teen about 9:30 a.m. just south of the Healy Metra stop near Fullerton Avenue and Pulaski Road, an Amtrak spokesperson said.


The Cook County medical examiner's office said the victim was 17 years old. On Friday, friends identified the victim as Kitsune Bodley Reed.

About 100 passengers were transferred to another train as crews investigated, Amtrak said.
