CTA Green Line Derailment Injures Seven
Chicago (June 6, 2019) – Taking the Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) Loop is one of the safest ways to travel in the city. However, there are rare instances of train accidents that have lead to injury and death. In early June, a Green Line train derailed, injuring seven people. The biggest accident in the Loop’s history occurred in 1977, when four cars derailed at the Randolph/Wabash station; eleven people died in that catastrophe.
Loop accidents happen for a variety of reasons. Electric failures, impaired train operators, and mechanical issues with the tracks have caused train accidents in Chicago.
