32 Injured In CTA Blue Line Derailment

Thirty-two people were injured after a CTA Blue Line train derailed and hit the platform at O’Hare International Airport around 2:55 a.m Monday.

The injuries do not appear to be life threatening. It’s not clear how fast the train was moving but it jumped a bumper at the end of the line and moved up an escalator, according to Chicago Fire Department Spokesman Larry Langford.

Blue Line service has been temporarily suspended between O’Hare and Rosemont.

As a result, trains are only operating between Rosemont and Forest Park at this time.

Bus shuttle service is available to provide connecting service through the affected area between O’Hare and Rosemont.

CTA Spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis said buses were being used between the Rosemont and O’Hare stops.
