CHICAGO — A man was taken to a local hospital after he got off a moving Blue Line train and ended up on the tracks Tuesday morning in Logan Square, authorities said.
A 59-year-old man "tried to get off the train while it was still moving" and landed on the tracks between the Logan Square and Belmont stations about 8:50 a.m., said Officer Janel Sedevic, a Chicago Police Department spokeswoman. It was unclear why the man wanted to exit the train.
The man was initially taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition, Sedevic said, and his condition later improved.
The CTA cut power from the Jefferson Park station to the Damen Avenue station during the incident, and customers experienced delays in the morning, CTA spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis said.
The CTA offered shuttle service between stations.
