An Amtrak train on its way back to Chicago from Carbondale hit an SUV and killed the woman that was crossing at the intersection of Governors Hwy and Stunkel Rd/ (University pkwy).

This is bad because I cross at that crossing almost daily and lately the CN has been doing construction work on the gates/tracks and the gates would randomly go down 1/2 way and railroad workers would flag us through. My guess is this woman figured that the gates were acting up as usual and decided to go around them or something and when she did she got hit by an Amtrak train doing at least 60mph.
