More than 30 people were injured Sept. 30 morning after two trains running on the Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue Line tracks collided, CTA officials confirmed.

The accident happened just before 8 a.m. at Harlem Avenue and Interstate 290 in Forest Park, a northwest suburb that surrounds much of O’Hare International Airport. A westbound train that stopped at the Harlem station was struck by an out-of-service train heading toward the Loop, officials said.
