CHICAGO — A man was killed after being hit by a Red Line train at the Sox-35th Street station Saturday, officials said.
At 1:27 p.m., the man was riding a bike on the platform when he fell over and landed on the tracks, police said. He lost his balance just as a northbound train was approaching, said CTA spokesman Brian Steele, and the train hit him.
Red Line service was temporarily suspended between the Roosevelt and 47th Street stops after the incident, Steele said.
Train cars are inspected after any incident, Steele said, and the car involved in the fatal accident was returned to service.
A video from ABC7 showed the special Pride Car stopped at the Red Line station where the man was killed, but CTA officials could not immediately confirm the Pride Car was the one that hit the man.
The CTA's rainbow, LGBTQ Pride-themed four-car Red Line train was back in service Sunday, Steele said.
