A 51-year-old man was hit and killed by a Metra train early Monday morning, leading to big problems for riders on the Rock Island line.The man was hit in south suburban Tinley Park.

The train, which was carrying morning commuters into Chicago, had to stop because of the investigation. Metra eventually got another train to those stranded passengers, but there were delays along that line much of the morning.

The incident remains under investigation.
