(Chicago, IL) Nearly 50 people were taken to hospitals after a Chicago Transit Authority train ran head-on into another train that was stopped at a station in Forest Park this morning.

None of the injuries was considered serious, he said.

The accident happened around 8 a.m. when an outbound train stopped at the Harlem station was hit by an out-of-service train going the opposite direction on the same track, according to CTA spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis.

Officials are investigating why the out-of-service train was on the track, she said.
