Touhy-Lehigh intersection reopened after Metra accident in Niles
Multiple people were injured when a Metra train clipped a semi truck in north suburban Niles, just one of a series of incidents on Metra trains Monday morning.
The inbound Milwaukee North Line train clipped a semi about 6 a.m. on the Milwaukee District North Line near the Edgebrook station in Niles, Metra spokesman Tom Miller said.
Three people were hospitalized with minor injuries, according to Metra spokesman Michael Gillis.
The intersection of Touhy and Lehigh, where the crash occurred, reopened to traffic around 4:15 p.m., Gillis said.
