Woman Struck And Killed By Train

A Chillicothe woman was struck and killed by a train late Sunday night.

The Peoria Journal Star reports that 49-year-old Annette Streitmatter, of 1133 Crable Court, Apt. B11, was pronounced dead just before midnight Sunday near the 1800 block of North Hoyt Street.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll said Streitmatter’s death was instantaneous.

Train employees noticed what they described as a bump in the tracks around 9:15 p.m.

Police were called to the scene around 11:00.

Streitmatter reportedly lived less than a mile from where her body was discovered Sunday night.
