CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A person was hit by a Metra train Monday near west suburban Glen Ellyn.

The Union Pacific-West line train was traveling into Chicago at about 5:35 a.m. when it struck a pedestrian near Glen Ellyn, according to a tweet on the Metra UP-W account.

Both inbound and outbound trains were halted, but began moving on one track about an hour and a half later, Metra said. Extensive delays are anticipated.
