Train Hits Car In Streator

Posted by wlpo on March 25, 2010

A woman is lucky to be okay after a train took her for a ride Tuesday afternoon.

72 year old Marilyn McBride of Alcona was driving thru a railroad crossing at the east end of Streator when she was hit by an oncoming train.  The train pushed McBride for over 160 feet but she wasn’t hurt.

McBride told police she didn’t see the train.  She was ticketed for failing to yield.
