Red Line Train Derails In Englewood
CHICAGO (STMW) – Normal service has resumed on the CTA Red Line after a train derailed early Thursday in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.
The southbound Red Line train derailed at 12:50 a.m. at 63rd and Ashland, CTA spokesman Steve Mayberry said.
Passengers were unloaded from the derailed train and the power was removed at the Ashland station, Mayberry said.
Bus shuttles are being provided between Ashland and Garfield, Mayberry said.
Two other trains at 63rd and Loomis and 63rd and Peoria were affected by the derailed train and those passengers were also removed, Mayberry said. Riders from the Loomis train walked the tracks to the Ashland station and firefighters assisted people at the Peoria station.
There were no reported injuries, Mayberry said.
Normal service resumed on the CTA Red Line about 5:40 a.m., Mayberry said.
The cause of the derailment is under investigation, Mayberry said.
