Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said Saturday a 33-year-old man died after a Metra Union Pacific Northwest train hit a car Friday afternoon in Norwood Park. 

Friends said a teenage boy had just gotten in a rideshare vehicle from his home in Norwood Park headed to Evanston for a graduation party before the crash. The sedan had driven around the downed crossing gates, Metra officials said, and the train couldn’t avoid it. The mangled car was torn apart and left nearly in pieces on the side of the Metra tracks.

Firefighters transported both the teenage passenger and the driver to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.

A source said John O’Malley was the teen in the car. He’s reportedly a recent graduate of Notre Dame College Prep and in critical condition.
