DASHCAM FOOTAGE REVEALS ILLINOIS POLICE OFFICERS' CLOSE CALL WITH A COMMUTER TRAIN. The footage shows Police Officer Peter Stanglewicz narrowly missing a train that barrels through the corridor. The gates didn't close and warning lights did not go off.

Metra spokeswoman Katie Dahlstrom stated, "A signal maintainer who had arrived on scene a few minutes earlier for a separate issue immediately started investigating this incident and put additional protections in place to prevent trains from proceeding through the intersection until the problem could be fixed."
