The collision took place around 10:20 a.m. between the Oakton Yellow Line Station and the Howard Station in Chicago, according to authorities. Fire Department responders rescued two women from a chewed up red car at the scene; one was pronounced dead and the other was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in critical condition, according to ABC7. Five of the 17 train passengers were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries, and Skokie police are investigating.
The CTA has suspended Yellow Line service temporarily, and recommends commuters take the #97 Skokie bus or shuttle buses between stations.
