An Amtrak train hit and killed a woman Sunday afternoon on the Northwest Side, officials said.
The Cook County Medical Examiner's office identified the woman as 45 year old Margaret Valecke of Mount Prospect.
Paramedics responded to the scene and helped with the recovery of the body, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said.
None of the passengers or crew on the train were injured, Magliari said.
Magliari said the train is part of the Hiawatha service, which Amtrak’s Web site indicates operates between Chicago and Milwaukee.
The incident will cause consolidation and cancellations of service.
