Commuter train derails at Chicago airport

CHICAGO - An eight-car commuter train derailed early Monday at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, injuring 32 people on board after it failed to stop at an underground station at one of the busiest airports in the United States.

 

Chicago Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago said the train "climbed over the last stop, jumped up on the sidewalk and then went up the stairs and escalator."

 

Chicago Transit Authority spokesman Brian Steele said authorities are trying to piece together what happened, but says the train was likely traveling too fast. (AP)
