A woman was struck and killed by a CTA Red Line train Tuesday night in the Loop, fire officials said.

A northbound Red Line train came into contact with the person at 10:52 p.m. at the Jackson Station, 230 S. State St., said CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski.

The 35-year-old woman was pinned under the train at the underground station and was dead at the scene, according to Fire Media Affairs. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the death.

Northbound Red Line trains were temporarily rerouted to the elevated tracks between Cermak and Fullerton as crews investigated, but normal service resumed shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday, according to the CTA.
