Woman critical after ATV hit by train

   A metro-east woman is in critical condition after being struck by a train near Granite City Tuesday night.  Police say it happened about 9 p.m. at Lenox and Chouteau in Mitchell, Illinois.  

   A couple had reportedly been riding an all-terrain vehicle when it got stuck on railroad tracks.  The man was able to jump out of the way of the on-coming train, but the women couldn't.  

   The woman was struck and later airlifted to a hospital.  The man wasn't hurt.

   ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Catholic Church officials say an employee of a diocese outside Washington, D.C., was among the 80 people who died in the Spain trash crash this week.

   The Diocese of Arlington says on its Facebook page that Ana Maria Cordoba, an administrative employee from northern Virginia, died in the wreck.

   Catholic News Service, a division of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, reports that Cordoba, a benefits specialist, was traveling with her husband, Philippe, and her daughter, Christina, a rising high school senior in Arlington.

   CNS reports that Philippe and Christina Cordoba were in stable condition at a hospital.

   Family members were on their way to see the Cordobas' son, who had completed a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

   Messages left for the diocese late Thursday were not immediately returned.

   MADRID (AP) - A Spanish court official says 77 people were killed when a passenger train derailed on a curvy stretch of track in northwestern Spain in what was one of the country's worst rail accidents in decades.

   Maria Pardo Rios, spokeswoman for the Galicia region's main court, said Thursday that 73 people were found dead at the scene of the accident and four died at hospitals.

   At least 140 people were injured in the derailment late Wednesday.

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Two commuter trains packed with rush-hour commuters collided in an accident that sent more than 60 people to Connecticut hospitals, severely damaged the tracks and threatened to snarl travel in the congested Northeast Corridor.

 

   Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said five people were critically injured and one was very critically hurt in Friday evening's crash on the Metro-North Railroad, which serves the northern suburbs of New York City.

 

   Passengers described a chaotic, terrifying scene of crunching metal and flying bodies when the two trains, carrying about 700 people, collided shortly after 6 p.m.

 

   Amtrak, which uses the same rails, suspended service indefinitely between New York and Boston.

 

   Malloy said there was no reason to believe it was anything other than an accident.

 

   The National Transportation Safety Board was sending a team to investigate.
