FOREST PARK, Ill. (AP) - About four dozen people were injured when two Chicago Transit Authority trains crashed in the western suburb of Forest Park.
Forest Park Mayor Anthony Calderone says none of the injuries were serious. He says the injured were taken to ten hospitals, most complaining of back and neck pain. Calderone says it appears one westbound train and one eastbound train collided on the tracks at the Harlem station. A section of one of the train cars was crushed.
The crash happened between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. during the Monday morning rush hour. Calderone says firefighters from up to a dozen local fire departments responded to the crash.
A spokesman with the National Transportation Safety Board in Denver told The Associated Press it did not have any immediate details.
