A CTA Pink Line train collided with an SUV in Cicero in the 2100-block of South Laramie after the driver tried to beat the gate, officials said.

Officials said the SUV cut in front of the train early Friday morning, trying to speed through a crossing gate as the Pink Line train, which runs on the street level, approached.

The driver of the Expedition, train operator and one passenger were taken to area hospitals with "minor injuries."
