On Monday morning, a Blue Line train jumped the track at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, injuring 32 people. This stunning video shows the exact moment the train crashed into escalators.
According to CBS Chicago, the NTSB said the driver of the CTA train fell asleep, not waking up until impact. Lead investigator Ted Turpin also revealed that the driver nodded off while controlling a train last month, missing a stop.
The crash reportedly resulted in $6 million worth of damage to CTA equipment. The amount of damage that the station and platform sustained has not been revealed yet. CBS Chicago adds that interviews with inspectors, emergency response officials and Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago will be conducted today.
