Metra trains along the BNSF line were temporarily stopped between Cicero and Western after a semi crashed into a bridge carrying the rail line.

A track inspector had to check the structure near Kedzie and Cermak before Metra trains on the BNSF could proceed, officials said. The inspection is protocol, officials said, and trains were given the all clear to move ahead just after 4 p.m. Wednesday.
