CHICAGO — CTA Red Line trains were rerouted to elevated lines Thursday afternoon after a train struck a person.

According to the CTA, subway trains were rerouted to elevated lines between Fullerton and Cermak-Chinatown due a medical emergency on the tracks near the Harrison stop around 4:30 p.m.

After stopping at Fullerton, all trains headed toward 95th Street will make the following elevated station stops:

  • Armitage

  • Chicago
  • Merchandise Mart
  • Clark/Lake
  • State/Lake
