WESTMONT – The death of a 31-year-old Hickory Hills man struck by a train in Westmont last month has been ruled accidental.
Eric Bennett was killed March 7 along the Burlington Northern/ Santa Fe rail line at the Cass Avenue railroad crossing after he disobeyed train signals and was struck by an eastbound train, according to DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen.
"Witnesses on the scene said the arms were down over the track and the lights were flashing," Jorgensen said. "There was no indication of suicide or that he intentionally did this."
