There were some delays Thursday morning for Metra's Union Pacific West riders after a train hit an unoccupied car.

It happened just before dawn near the West Chicago station.

Investigators say the car was left behind from an earlier two-car crash.

Firefighters say one person was injured in that car accident, but no one on the train was hurt.

Following a brief service disruption, trains were moving again by 6:45 a.m.
