Train Wreck on Siding Near Crystal Lake Jewel

As I was leaving Colonial Cafe after Wednesday’s Crystal Lake Kiwanis meeting, I drove up Main Street and saw three Union Pacific engines blocking the entrance to the Jewel shopping center.

I saw a Crystal Lake Police car with lights blinking between the train and Main.

When I checked out the Northwest Herald later, I saw that an 82-year old woman had been hit by the slow moving engines.
