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.
