OAK PARK, Ill. (AP) -- There has been a crash involving two Chicago Transit Authority trains on the Blue Line.
Several ambulances have been sent to the scene on Monday morning during the city's rush hour. Media photos from the scene show a crushed section of one train car.
According to the Chicago Sun Times, at least 48 people were taken to local hospital. None of the injuries appear to be life threatening at this time.
A spokeswoman for the CTA said that a westbound Blue Line train was stopped at the Harlem station when it was struck by an eastbound train on the same track. The CTA says the crash happened just before 8 a.m.
A spokesman with the National Transportation Safety Board in Denver told The Associated Press it did not have any immediate details.
