A man was transported to the hospital and is expected to survive after being partially hit by a Metra train in Lake Forest Tuesday afternoon.
The incident happened around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday just north of the Lake Forest West Side Metra Station, 911 Telegraph Road.
Metra Train #2117, which was on the Milwaukee District North Line, “clipped” the pedestrian north of the station, according to Metra spokesman Michael Gillis.
The male victim sustained an injury to his right shoulder, Gillis said.
The victim began walking northbound along the railroad tracks away from the scene, according to the fire department.
Police and fire department crews located the victim near the Chicago Bears training complex Halas Hall, Gillis said.
Paramedics transported the man to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for treatment.
Gillis said the man’s condition was not immediately known and it is unknown why he was on the tracks.
The train involved was scheduled to arrive in Fox Lake at 2:22 p.m. and was halted following the incident.
The train involved began moving again around 2:40 p.m. with extensive delays, Metra said.
