There were approximately 48 people injured when two Blue Line trains collided earlier today.
It was reported that a runaway train struck another stopped train at the Forest Park station. Initial reports indicate this may have been sabotage, or the train was taken out of the CTA rail yard, and/or possibly someone may have operated the train.
Several people with minor injuries were transported to nearby hospitals for further examination. This incident is under further investigation, and National Transportation Safety Board officials will also be involved.
