CTA Train Rail Derails, Injures Passenger

A CTA Red Line passenger was injured at 2 a.m. Tuesday morning after the train derailed along the Dan Ryan Expressway. The Chicago Fire Department stated that the passenger was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Center in Evergreen Park and treated for minor injuries. Power was shut off in both directions to the southern end of the Red Line for several hours while crews worked on the scene, but was restored in time for the morning commute. This Chicao Transit Authority accident comes less than a week after a CTA Green Line train derailed along 59th Street on the South Side last Wednesday. 14 people were injured in that incident. There is no word yet whether the injured passenger has or will file a personal injury lawsuit.
