STERLING – A 15-year-old Chadwick boy hit by a train was upgraded to fair condition Wednesday at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, a nursing supervisor said.

Chance Casares was struck on the railroad bridge over Elkhorn Creek around 7 p.m. Friday.

He and two other juveniles were taking a shortcut from the creek back into Milledgeville when he was hit by the westbound train and rolled down a 50-foot embankment, suffering multiple injuries, Police Chief James Haag said.
