O’Hare Station Derailment
Public transit is inevitable for many Chicagoans. For those Blue Line riders, this fall and winter’s station closings will be a pain. And that guy shooting a rifle in the LaSalle station last month? Could be worse. Remember last March when a Blue Line train headed into the O’Hare station, overran the bumper, and derailed? That security camera footage nervewrackingly showed bystanders conversing mere seconds before the train ascended an escalator causing six-million dollars in damages. Good thing the CTA increased the fair from O’Hare to $5.
