Readers may remember hearing about an unusual train accident that occurred late last September in the western suburb of Forest Park. In that incident, which we first wrote about in October, a Chicago Transit Authority train was stopped at a station when it was struck by an unmanned and unoccupied train. Both trains were on the CTA’s Blue Line tracks.
Approximately 33 passengers aboard the stationary train were injured after being struck by what is now being dubbed a “ghost train.” Two personal injury lawsuits were filed relatively quickly after the incident. Earlier this month, a third lawsuit was filed by four others who were injured in the September 2013 train accident.
