Woman hit by train survives

Posted:
Mukwonago (WISN) -

A woman hit by a train in the town of Mukwonago is awake and talking.

Kelsey Bilicki, 23, had her left arm amputated, and she suffered multiple broken bones along with a head injury.

"I still feel like I'm in a dream right now. It's not really hitting me yet," Kelsey's sister, Haley Bilicki, said.

Haley Bilicki said she can't believe her sister is alive.

Kelsey's boyfriend, Brandon Calkins, has been charged after what happened Nov. 14 on the railroad tracks in the town of Mukwonago.

In the criminal complaint, Kelsey's mother told police, "At approximately 9 p.m., Kelsey had called her stating that she had been injured by her boyfriend, Brandon Calkins, that she was trying to walk away, and he caught up to her and pushed her down, and that she had struck her head on a rock."

The complaint said it was her mother's belief "that when Brandon pushed Kelsey down, she had actually struck her head on a metal rail causing a serious injury that required multiple stitches to her forehead."

Prosecutors said they're waiting for the surveillance video from the train that hit Kelsey to see if it shows how she ended up on the track.

Haley Bilicki said her sister is talking now but doesn't remember what happened that night.

"Kelsey's strength has given us all so much strength and hope," Haley Bilicki said.

Kelsey's family is asking for continued prayers for her recovery.

Her boyfriend is charged with three misdemeanors, but the prosecutor told WISN 12 News' Terry Sater that the investigation continues and more serious charges will be considered.

There is a fundraiser set up for Kelsey.
