Respected and loved dance teacher, Katie Lunn, 26, of Chicago, was killed when her vehicle was hit one evening last month by an Amtrak train at Stuenkel Road in south suburban University Park. Brown was driving a vehicle carrying her two daughters and one of their friends. The darkness and the layout of the crossing made it difficult to see, reports said.
The woman reportedly drove over the railroad tracks, but the crossing's signal lights weren't working and that the gate did not come down, reports say. In fact, a Cook County prosecutor said she herself barely dodged being hit earlier that day.
Hours before she was struck, work crews had reportedly been out at the crossing reportedly working on the signal. Lunn had been at the American Dance Awards contest at Governors State University.
In the event of a train injury, especially one where the warning lights were faulty, there's possible compensatory relief.
