CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Regular CTA Pink Line service was resuming with delays after a person was hit by a train Monday morning in west suburban Cicero.

About 8:50 a.m., an eastbound Pink Line train “made contact with an unauthorized person on the tracks” between the 54th/Cermak and Cicero stations, according to CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski. Power to the tracks was shut down in both directions.

As a result, all train service was suspended between 54th/Cermak and Pulaski, according to the CTA. Trains were only running between Pulaski and the Loop for several hours, but service was resuming with residual delays by 12:14 p.m.

Cicero police and CTA officials did not immediately have information about the condition of the person hit by the train
