Orange Line derailment
(WGN-TV / November 9, 2012)
Two people suffered minor injuries when a CTA train derailed in the Orange Line rail yard at Midway Airport Friday morning, officials said
The train derailed around 2:30 a.m. in the 4600 block of West 59th Street, according to the Chicago Fire Department.
"There were no passengers in the train, they were just laying it up in the yard," CTA spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis said.
The train wasn't in service and the accident won't affect morning commuters, she said. The cause of the derailment wasn't known.
