The daughter of a Wood County village council member died when a commuter train hit her in a Chicago suburb last week. ABC Channel 7 in Chicago reports the train hit 54-year-old Kelly Harris and her guide dog as Harris was walking to a CVS store down the street from her home. Harris was visually impaired.

Harris’ mother is Risingsun council member Rachel Dissauer.

Harris’ husband told Chicago media that Kelly was familiar with the crossing. He believes Harris was either disoriented or somehow got turned around.
