um....let me get this straight...the way the article was written it was a little hard to understand, but it sounds like a teenaged driver with three other people in the car, one of them a baby that wasn't strapped in, went around the safety gate at a crossing, and his car got hit by the train and then hit two other cars???...what an idiot!...OMG

Thats down the street from my guy house in Blue Island. They are blessed. Especially if they where crossing the tracks at the Blue Island station on 119th and Vincennes. If it was the one by the Dan Ryan on I-57 and they said it was doing about 30mph, they should be thanful. That bracnh is the "Express" branch. Trains normally do about 75mph over there. I hope it wasn't one of the ILL-State Members
