A person was killed when a Metra train struck a vehicle Wednesday in north suburban Round Lake.

Milwaukee District North Line train No. 2129 struck the vehicle about 6 p.m. near Cedar Lake Road and Route 134, Metra spokesman Tom Miller said.

The vehicle may have gone around downed crossing gates, and at least one person was reported killed, Miller said, citing preliminary information.

All outbound trains between Chicago and Fox Lake were stopped for several hours following the accident.
