CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) --  CTA Red Line trains have resumed service after experiencing delays between the Howard and Addison stations on the North Side for a person hit by a train at the Bryn Mawr stop.

The CTA announced the initial delay about 1:35 p.m. Sunday, citing a “medical emergency on the tracks.”

A Chicago Fire Department spokesman confirmed that a person was hit by a train. The person was pronounced dead on the scene.

A train conductor was taken to Thorek Memorial Hospital for treatment, the fire department said. His injuries are not believed to be serious.
