CHICAGO (SCS) — A school-aged boy was killed by an Amtrak train Thursday morning as it encroached on a railroad embankment in the Logan Square neighborhood.
Amtrak and Chicago Fire Department officials said around 9:30 a.m. a Hiawatha Line train bound for Milwaukee struck the boy in the 3900 block of West Armitage Avenue.
Fire department officials said the boy appeared to be of high school age, but could not provide a specific age.
None of the 105 passengers on the Amtrak train, nor the crew members, were injured.
The train that hit the boy was stopped and a Metra train took the passengers back to Union Station. Two other Amtrak trains bound for Milwaukee were canceled following the crash, but normal service was scheduled to resume Thursday afternoon.
Further information was not immediately available.
