Unexplained Derailment At O'Hare Leaves Dozens Injured

A startling accident led to 32 people suffering injuries Monday morning, as a CTA Blue Line train came off the tracks at O'Hare Airport station. The eight-car train derailed just before 3 a.m. this morning. After coming off the tracks, the train traveled up an escalator at the O'Hare station. Thankfully, the train accident caused no fatalities. The operator of the train was walking and discussing the incident with investigators later in the morning.

Chicago Working to Stem the Tide of Pedestrian Accidents

Most people in Chicago spend a lot of time walking to get where they are going. Unfortunately, the city is not always safe for pedestrians. To address that problem, the City of Chicago Department of Transportation has begun to implement more than 250 measures that should improve pedestrian safety in the Windy City over the next several years. The plan's priorities include making pedestrian areas around schools, parks and public transit safer. The plan also includes adding pedestrian islands to multi-lane roadways, using crosswalk countdown timers for pedestrians and installing improved beacons and signals. The city also will build more speed humps to slow traffic in residential neighborhoods.
