Ivan Horvatic Obituary, Coroner IDs Man Hit And Killed By Metra Train In Barrington

Ivan Horvatic Obituary, Death – The medical examiner has confirmed the identity of the man who was killed when he was hit by a Metra train in Barrington. On Sunday morning, the Union Pacific Northwest Line experienced considerable delays as a result of this event. The Barrington Fire Department and the Barrington Police Department responded to a call at the train tracks in Barrington, which are right across from 1189 South Northwest Highway, around 11:28 a.m. on Sunday. A pedestrian was hurt after being hit by a train, according to emergency services. According to Metra spokeswoman Meg Reile, it was confirmed that the pedestrian died at the scene of the accident. The incident occurred on the Union Pacific Northwest Line between the Barrington and Palatine Metra stations, about two miles south of the Barrington station. It happened somewhere between Barrington and Palatine.

The Metra train involved in the incident, according to Reile, was halted for about two and a half hours. Despite the fact that it had just left Barrington station, the train was scheduled to arrive at the Palatine station at 11:25 a.m., despite the fact that it was already entirely packed. A passenger seated towards the front of the train reported hearing the train’s horn soon before the incident. According to Reile, it is unknown if the incident occurred accidentally or on purpose, and the medical examiner will make the conclusion.

The incident occurred in a desolate area bounded to the north by Northwest Highway and to the south by a residential subdivision. A row of trees on both sides of the road separates the railroad lines from the community. The victim was identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office as Ivan Horvatic, 49, of Park Ridge. The official cause of death has yet to be determined, according to the medical examiner’s office.
