Person struck by CTA Red Line train on South Side

Found this Chicago Breaking News article from Worlee's Concerned Citizen's of Chatham FB page
A person was struck by a southbound CTA Red Line train tonight, officials said.

The collision occurred just before 9:30 p.m. at the 87th Street stop, CTA spokeswoman Wanda Taylor said.

Taylor said she didn't know the person's condition, or have details about how the collision occurred.

A spokeswoman for Chicago police said that officers were on the scene, but also couldn't offer details.

A Fire Department spokesman said paramedics did not make any transports, and said the scene was under control of police.

Authorities shut down power to the tracks, Taylor said. While service remained normal between 79th Street and Howard, shuttle buses were operating between the 79th Street and 95th Street train stops, Taylor added.
Hopefully all are OK!
