CTA Blue Line Accident

September 30, 2013, 8 a.m. - Two CTA trains collided on Chicago's Blue Line this morning causing 33 injured passengers to be transported to local area hospitals.  The CTA train accident in Forest Park, Illinois happened when one CTA train collided with an "out-of-service" train.  Early reports are that the "out-of-service" train appears to have been moving on the tracks with no trainman inside.  Further, the out-of-service train is believed to have passed through several areas with mechanisms in place meant to stop a train if there were problems ahead.  

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is investigating why the Chicago Blue Line train accident occurred.   (If the looming government shut down occurs tomorrow, the CTA train accident  investigation by the NTSB will continue as the investigation is considered "essential services".)
