The CTA suspended Red Line train service during Thursday morning's commute after a train reportedly struck a person on the tracks near 69th Street, the transit authority announced on Twitter.
The CTA told the Tribune that a person was struck by a train around 8 a.m., and as a result train service was suspended between 8 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. on a stretch of South Side tracks several long between Garfield Boulevard and 95th Street.
Service has since resumed by trains may still be running with delays due to some signal problems near 63rd Street:
Some Red Line trains are operating with residual delays after an earlier medical emergency on the tracks near 69th. Service is resuming.— cta (@cta) December 8, 2016
