It' happened during rush hour Tuesday evening.

 

A northbound Metra train struck a 38-year-old male pedestrian who was crossing the train tracks south of the Morton Grove Metra station Tuesday evening, according to Commander Paul Yaras of the Morton Grove Police Department. 

The incident happened after 6 p.m. about 8300 north on the tracks, which run paralled to Lehigh Avenue. There is no pedestrian or vehicle crossing at that point, and Yaras said it may have been an accident.

Danny You, of Skokie, was killed, according to the Sun-Times.
