That's pretty crazy? Up the escalator even? I've never even heard of that before.

So yes, everyone is ok


People can be more than physically injured. Going through something like that is damaging to your mind. Sometimes non serious injuries can also involve breaking bones- cuts- etc. Why must you be so snarky about this?

I'd like to know as well......So Chicago friend roll call!!! :D

Well the station is still closed, I still can't believe it. Good thing it didn't happen when the employees were coming into work, it's a lot of people for morning and afternoon shifts. They will interview the driver today, said they were tired. If I find out that it was the same driver that took me home from work then I question how fast they were really going. When I was on the train, the driver forced the breaks to slow down almost knocking me down a few times since I was standing for some stops until I got off at my stop.

the blue line is usually so chill.
I am probably still taking the blue line for ACen anyway.

The video is out. I read that it's the not the first time the driver fell asleep. I wonder how much longer the shuttle buses will be in place?

When I said "is everyone okay," I didn't just mean in the physical sense. With the trains shut down it's hard to get to work or perhaps you knew someone was injured or maybe it affected someone in some way. I just saw it was local and thought I'd ask. I'm a world away from all that stuff. I'm more worried about when they're closing the dining facilities on base than trains smashing into anything.

Will this affect the shuttle area for the hotels or is there a separate zone for the Blue Line Shuttles?

Rosemont is one stop up from Ohare- so it shouldnt effect anything I think. I'm not sure where the shuttle is though.

As of 3pm Sunday the trains are running to O'hare and no more shuttle buses until something else happens. I have yet to see the station since I was picked up from work.
