Prescott driver arrested in tow rage case during snowstorm cleanup

  Prescott driver arrested in tow rage case during snowstorm cleanup A 30-year-old Prescott resident faces a number of charges after leaping into a vehicle strapped on flatbed tow truck and starting it up, apparently intending to take off. The incident occurred when tow trucks and graders were on storm cleanup duty on James Street Monday afternoon. At about 1:30 p.m., police were called by the tow operator that the owner of a towed car was trying to make a break for it. “Police attended and observed the running vehicle, attached to the tow, with the resident sitting in the driver’s seat,” police noted in a release. Officers asked the resident to get out of the car and step down from the flatbed, which he did.

Two Chicago police officers were fatally struck by a train Monday as they investigated a report of gunshots on the city's far South Side. "There was no stop at that location so the train was probably going somewhere between 60 and 70 miles per hour," Johnson said during a news conference.

After police were finished, passengers were able to leave the train and take the short bus ride to the Kitchener train station. In July 2017, a woman was killed after she was hit by a GO train coming from Toronto. In April 2013, a 76-year-old cyclist died after he was struck by a Via Rail passenger

Waterloo Regional Police say a charge has been laid under the Railway Safety Act after a Kitchener woman and six-year-old boy from Guelph were hit by a GO train last November.

They say the woman has been charged with failing to give way to railway equipment.
