A woman who was struck and killed by a CTA Red Line train a week ago in the Loop has been identified.

A northbound Red Line train came into contact with the person at 10:52 p.m. on June 28 at the Jackson station, 230 S. State St., said CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski.

The 36-year-old woman, identified as Jena Adachi by the Cook County medical examiner’s office, was pinned under the train at the underground station, according to Fire Media Affairs.

Adachi, of the 600 block of West 47th Place, was pronounced dead at the scene at 11 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office. Her death was ruled a suicide.
