Pedestrian killed after being struck by Metra train in Cary
A 53-year-old Cary woman was struck and killed by a Metra train Tuesday morning near the Cary train station.
Authorities said Cynthia L. Bras was crossing the tracks near the station when she was struck about 7 a.m.
Metra officials said preliminary investigations showed all lights and crossing gates were working in the area at the time.
Trains north of Barrington were halted on the UP Northwest line for several hours while Metra and Cary police officers investigated the woman's death.
Metra officials said a more detailed report on the woman's death would likely be made public today.
