CTA suspends switchman in runaway train collision

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A Chicago Transit Authority switchman has been suspended for the runaway train that caused a two-train collision on the Blue Line in Forest Park last month.

Union leaders believe the CTA is simply looking for someone to blame.

Federal authorities are still investigating the head-on crash between the runaway train and one filled with passengers at the Harlem Avenue station.

Dozens of people were checked out at area hospitals, but only a few were seriously hurt.
