CHICAGO (Reuters) - A stalled train disrupted subway service in Chicago on Tuesday, stranding some passengers underground and forcing evacuations, officials said.
No injuries were reported but traffic on the busy line which connects O’Hare Airport to downtown was snarled as passengers were rerouted onto shuttle buses.
Transit officials said a train suffered mechanical problems as it neared a downtown station and stalled. A number of other trains were stuck below ground though how many passengers were involved was not known.
There was no smoke or fire. Passengers walked underground through evacuation routes to street-level exit points.
