CHICAGO (CBS) — CTA commuters were temporarily stymied on the Orange Line during the Friday rush hour after a train fatally struck a man on the tracks.

Service was suspended in both directions between Roosevelt and 35th/Archer. Images from Chopper 2 showed a man slumped along the side of a train, which was traveling on an elevated portion of the tracks in the Bridgeport neighborhood.

The incident happened near 23rd Place and Archer around 4:30 p.m.

Archer was closed in the area.

CTA provided shuttle service both directions between Roosevelt and 35th and Archer. Service was restored by evening.
