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.
A recent study by the National Sleep Foundation shows that transportation workers - including truck drivers, airline pilots and train operators - are at significant risk of having their job performance affected by drowsiness.
