CTA Train Derails During Morning Commute and Injures Ten People: Driver Error Blamed

A CTA Green Line train derailed and injured ten people this morning during the rush hour commute in yet another CTA accident. This Chicago Transit Authority accident comes after a troubled summer for Chicago transit. According to news stories, the CTA train derailed after the Motorman, or train driver, intentionally went through a red signal. CTA tracks have an automatic device that stops trains from going through red signals by stopping the train. However, the driver ignored the safety device and restarted the train. The train then derailed on the tracks but did not fall to the street. 14 people were taken to area hospitals and ten people were reported injured in the CTA accident. There is no word yet if any CTA derailment injury lawsuits or CTA accident lawsuits have been filed.
