A sailor from California was killed while trying to run across the tracks to beat a Metra train.

The Union Pacific North Line train was headed from Chicago to Kenosha, Wisconsin. It struck 23-year-old Chase Church just north of the north suburban Highwood station Tuesday night.

Church was with some friends who also ran in front of the train. But they were not injured.

Church had recently graduated from the Great Lakes Naval Training Center.
