    The cause of the accident remains under investigation. The train was traveling at a high rate of speed while pulling into the station and officials are trying to determine why, Steele said.

    "We don't know yet what led to this incident,” Steele said. “We will be looking at everything — equipment, signals, the human factor, any extenuating circumstances.”

    The National Transportation Safety Board also will investigate the crash.

    This happened at BWI airport about 10 years ago too.

    Train operator fell asleep at the "wheel"

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/2640743...ear-ohare.html

    A female CTA operator who had worked “a lot of hours in the last week” may have nodded off as a Blue Line train rolled into the O’Hare station and kept going — onto the platform and up an escalator, a union official said Monday.

    “The indications are she may have dozed off,’’ Robert Kelly, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local, said at a news conference.

    The female operator — a one-year CTA veteran — “works a lot of overtime” and had worked “a lot of hours in the last week,’’ Kelly said.

    She did not tell him directly that she had nodded off, Kelly said, but media reports said she admitted doing so and she did concede to him that she was “extremely tired.’’

    A source told the Chicago Sun-Times that the operator told a supervisor she had dozed off just before a 2:50 a.m. Monday crash at the end of the O’Hare Blue line that sent 32 people to local hospitals, none for serious injuries.
