A Metra train has hit and killed a pedestrian in north suburban Wilmette Friday afternoon.

Chopper 7HD live over the scene in Wilmette.

It's not clear yet what happened but at least one Metra train on the Union Pacific North Line is stopped.

Commuters on other trains could face delays, too. Metra is suggesting passengers use the Milwaukee North line as an alternative.
