A Volvo Semi-trailer truck became stuck on the Union Pacific Northwest Line railroad tracks at Arthur Avenue about 3:10 p.m. Wednesday, December 22, 2021. The truck was blocking all tracks while an outbound Metra train waited about 300 yards east of the stuck truck.




Police and firefighters were on the scene while a rotator truck from Hillside Towing arrived. In a matter of a few seconds after the arrival of Hillside Towing, the semi-trailer truck driver was able to back the truck off of the tracks, and then drive over to a curb parking area near the westbound lanes of Northwest Highway (US 14).

The truck was cleared off the tracks about 3:50 p.m.

No injuries were reported.

Metra trains #652, #625, #621, #648, #6211 were delayed because of the blocked railroad tracks.
