Under unclear circumstances, Des Plaines, Illinois resident Craig Kindle wound up prone and unconscious on the railroad tracks that ran near the Kindle family’s residential neighborhood late on the night of Halloween 2007. Although he was spotted by the engineer of a southbound train, it was too late to achieve a full stop by the time the engineer applied the brakes. Kindle survived the collision, but he incurred massive injuries, dying 12 days later. Kindle’s surviving family members have filed a suit against the Canadian National Railway Corporation and subsidiary Wisconsin Central Transportation Corporation, claiming an array of negligent operating practices. The suit asks for at least $50,000 in damages.
