Naperville residents hope to erect train crash memorial

Some Naperville residents are pushing forward plans to create a sculpture remembering a train crash that killed 45 people in 1946.

In 1946, two trains crashed at the Naperville station and killed 45 people, including some military personnel returning from World War II.

"It's also tragic when something like this goes unnoticed and gets forgotten," said Chuck Spinner, a Naperville native and author of the book "The Tragedy at the Loomis Street Crossing."

No memorial marks the crash site in the western suburb, but some local history buffs hope to change that next year.
