South Shore lines running as normal after fatal accident

Posted:

All South Shore lines from Northern Indiana to Chicago should be back up and running as normal after a fatal accident Sunday night.

The St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department says Ryan Voreis, 22, from South Bend was killed when his car collided with a South Shore Line train. It happened near the Pine and Edison intersection around just after 8 o'clock Sunday night.

Police say there were more than 200 people on board when it happened, but The NICTD says no passengers were injured. The train eventually left the scene and continued on to its final destination at the South Bend Regional Airport. Officials say the train did not take much damage.

"I was told it wasn't that bad," said Sgt. William Redman. "They were able to drive the train from the location to the South Bend airport, so it was safe enough to get passengers from the location to the destination."

Police do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, but they said they will have to wait for autopsy and toxicology results to tell for sure.
