Jocelyn Morales, 21, killed and man injured in car collision with freight train at Main Street and north 19th Avenue in Melrose Park, Illinois
A man drove around railroad crossing gates in west suburban Melrose Park Friday morning, investigators said. His car was struck by a freight train and pushed several blocks. His female passenger was killed.
Jocelynn Morales, 21, of the 300-block of 22nd Avenue in Bellwood, was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:51 a.m., the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said.
Jocelynn spent Thursday decorating her family's Christmas tree--and planned to finish on Friday. The missing star on top-- now a small reminder of her family's tremendous loss.
