CHICAGO — Fourteen people were transported to area hospitals after a possible collision between two CTA trains.

It happened at about 9 a.m. Tuesday just north of the Sedgwick station.

It appears that a southbound Brown Line train made contact with a southbound Purple Line train. There was no derailment of any rail cars, and it’s unclear at this time whether or not the trains collided.

A pregnant woman and a person with diabetes were among those transported to area hospital for evaluation. Everyone was listed in fair or good condition, officials said.

Normal CTA service resumed at about 10:30 a.m.

CTA continues to investigate the incident.
