CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Bartlett firefighter/paramedics and police responded to a semi-trailer truck crash with a Metra passenger train at about 4:00 p.m. Monday. The crash involved a semi-trailer car carrier truck — the second crash involving a car carrier truck in less than 24 hours in the Chicago area. Last night a semi-trailer car carrier hit a concrete center barrier wall on the southbound Dan Ryan just north of 69th street. There were no injuries.

At least one of the Metra passenger cars shows severe damage to the side or “skin” of the passenger car. No confirmation yet on injuries, but there is possibly one person injured. As of 4:35 p.m. there has been no extra alarm for ambulances ordered.

Hoffman Estates firefighters are standing by to assist Bartlett firefighters.

    This is insane. I used to commute there at the Bartlett Metra all the time. Hopefully those injured in lieu of this accident will be okay. I wonder how long it’s going to take for Metra to sort this out so people can get back to commuting at their Metra station. I remember one time, when I was too young to even remember, I walked along the train tracks with my dad. It was so cold that we both had hard nipples. I remember always fearing something like this would happen.
