Semi crashes through wall at Red Line tracks

Crews have pulled a semi-truck off a set of CTA Red Line train tracks at 69th and the Dan Ryan Expressway.

Illinois State Police says the truck crashed through a wall and landed on newly repaired tracks.

No one was hurt.

The CTA says Red Line trains between 69th and 79th are sharing a single track because of debris on the tracks next to it.

There will be delays, but it is unclear how long they'll last.

Three southbound lanes were closed while crews remove debris late Sunday.
