Woman, 4-year-old granddaughter sue CTA after runaway train crash
OAKBROOK TERRACE – A 65-year-old woman and her 4-year-old granddaughter filed a lawsuit today against the Chicago Transit Authority, claiming they were on the front car of the CTA train involved in the Sept. 30 crash with a runaway "ghost train," according to a news release from the Law Offices of Peter M. Delongis in Oakbrook Terrace.
The lawsuit, filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, alleges that Bethena Davis and her granddaughter were on the first car of a westbound elevated CTA train, which was stopped at the Harlem Avenue station in Forest Park, when a runaway Eastbound ghost train, traveling on the same track, collided head on with the stopped train.
Both Davis and her granddaughter suffered "permanent physical injuries, and will in the future continue to suffer great pain and mental anguish," the lawsuit claims.
