A 57-year-old bicyclist was struck and killed by an express eastbound commuter train in Riverside, Illinois. Eastbound trains were running on tracks usually used by westbound trains. There had been a derailment that morning, causing employees of Burlington Northern Santa Fe to deactivate the pedestrian crossing gates to better access the derailment.
