CTA train derailed Tuesday night

Chicago CTA trains are operating at full service on the elevated tracks after a derailment caused major delays in the loop.


Investigators say the front two wheels of an Orange Line train came off the tracks Tuesday night.


The train kept going sending dozens of steel rail clips and other debris raining down on the street down below.


The train eventually stopped.


A man was sitting in his car when it happened. 


He considers himself lucky to be alive.

 

"See all of that? It fell and it bounced. That could have hit me. It could have hit my sunroof," Williams said. "That's heavy. That's not a little piece of wood. That's steel."

 

CTA crews replaced the steel clips and workers finished repairs around 1 Wednesday morning.
