CHICAGO, Il. (March 24, 2014) — At least 32 people were hurt early Monday morning when a CTA Blue Line train derailed at O’Hare International Airport.

According to WGN in Chicago, the train hit a platform and went partway up an escalator.  It’s not clear how fast the train was moving, but it jumped a bumper at the end of the line and moved up an escalator, according to Chicago Fire Department Spokesman Larry Langford.

The injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.  The investigation into what happened is still in the initial stages, so details will be forthcoming.
