Derailment at Red Line Roosevelt Stop

Early in the morning it sounds as if there was a derailment at the Roosevelt red line stop this morning. Only two people were hurt and it looks like service is fine.

For more info here is a link to the Chicago Tribune coverage:
"As we approached Roosevelt, the train started to jerk a little. It was running on a single track and then it kind of fell off its wheel on a track, hit the platform, sparks flashed, lights went off and smoke was everywhere," Hicks said.

"Looks like service is fine." You must be joking, the entire red line in the loop all the way north to Fullerton isn't running.
