Crash Causes Brown Line Delays

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Mar 5, 2009 7:30PM

A crash between a CTA Brown Line train and a truck on the Northwest side (near Lawrence and Kedzie) has caused some major delays on the Brown Line (and snarled traffic). Be sure to follow the CTA site for more details.

Update: It seems, as a commenter mentions, that the truck went around the gates in an attempt to beat the train.

Update II: One reader (thanks, Jeff!) has passed us along these pics of the scene. Get more from Twitter user "benjorno."
