Red Line train strikes, kills person on tracks near Bryn Mawr
CHICAGO — A person was struck and killed by a Red Line train near the Bryn Mawr station Sunday afternoon, according to police.
The Chicago Transit Authority first reported a “medical emergency” on the tracks at Bryn Mawr around 1:30 p.m. Sunday, and initially halted all trains between Belmont and Howard as first responders arrived on the scene. Trains were diverted for three hours, until service was restored by 6 p.m. Sunday.
Cubs fans trying to get to Wrigley Field had to take shuttle buses to get there for the 6 p.m. game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Police say the train operator was injured and taken to the hospital, but is reportedly in stable condition.
