BARRINGTON, Ill. (WLS) -- The village of Barrington is considering adding pedestrian gates at rail crossings after a high school student was struck and killed by a Metra train in January.
Barrington officials said they're considering installing the pedestrian gates at the Hough Street and Union Pacific crossing. Officials are also considering adding more safety signage.
Marin Lacson, 17, was fatally struck in late January when she was crossing the tracks at Route 59 and Main Street while walking to school on a morning with thick fog.
Lacson attempted to cross the train tracks after a train had already passed, and she was hit by a different train coming from the other direction, the coroner's office said.
