Officials: Carpentersville woman killed by train went around gate

 

The Carpentersville woman killed by a Metra train in Elgin Thursday was being remembered as a caring friend and mother with a "contagious" smile.

 

Tawanda Williams, 45 — known to some friends as "Bill" — was struck as she apparently tried to get around a gate stopping traffic at the Elgin station, Metra spokesman Tom Miller said.
