Tragedy Returns to Fox River Grove
††††††††††† A parentís worst nightmare came true last night and a community devastated 11 years ago to the day received a grim reminder of how dangerous the railways can be.† Justin Glassmyer, age 15 of Fox River Grove was killed Wednesday night when he was struck by an Express Metra train at Algonquin Rd. and Rt. 14.† His mother Annette Williams, sisters Melissa, Heather, and Jennifer, survives Justin along with his stepfather Steve.
