Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper said Monday that the death of Petrovska has been ruled a suicide.

The 49-year-old Elk Grove Village woman was hit and killed by a Canadian National freight train in Barrington about 2:38 a.m. on Thursday at the Route 14 train crossing in Barrington, according to a Facebook post from the village of Barrington.

Police and firefighter/paramedics were also called about 4:52 p.m. Thursday April 13, 2017 after outbound Metra train No. 627 struck a Woodstock woman near the train station at 13 East Northwest Highway. The Mount Prospect train incident was also ruled a suicide.

Svetlana Petrovska (nee Sidorova), 49, of Elk Grove Village for 15 years, and formerly of Chicago, was born in Stropkov, Slovakia. A memorial visitation will be held Monday, August 14, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Grove Memorial Chapel, 1199 S. Arlington Heights Road, Elk Grove Village. Interment at Boksa Cemetery in Boksa, Slovakia. For information, 847-640-0566 or
