Person killed by Red Line train at Bryn Mawr stop

CTA Red Line trains have resumed service after experiencing delays between the Howard and Addison stations on the North Side for a person who was hit by a train and killed at the Bryn Mawr stop.

The CTA announced the initial delay about 1:35 p.m. Sunday, citing a “medical emergency on the tracks.” The suspension of service was announced at 2 p.m.

A Chicago Fire Department spokesman confirmed that a person was hit by a train. The person was pronounced dead on the scene.

An autopsy Monday found the male, who remains unidentified, died of multiple injuries caused by a train striking a pedestrian, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled a suicide.

A train conductor was taken to Thorek Memorial Hospital for treatment, the fire department said. His injuries are not believed to be serious.

The Red Line was experiencing delays due to a police investigation but has since resumed regular service, CTA said.
