Crane falls, blocks Metra BNSF tracks at Westmont

Image submitted by Joey W. via Useeit. A crane has tipped over and is blocking the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad tracks in Westmont. Train service is not expected to resume for at least two hours. There were no injuries. Metra says "extensive" delays are possible along its BNSF line Wednesday afternoon, and has already reported on its website that trains have not been operating beyond Westmont.
