A CTA Orange Line train fatally struck a west suburban man early Tuesday at the Archer station in the South Side McKinley Park neighborhood.

The northbound Orange Line train hit the man about 1:25 a.m. at the 35th/Archer station, 3528 S. Leavitt St., according to CTA spokesman Brian Steele and Chicago Police.

Federico G. Yanez, 46, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in Westchester.

An autopsy Tuesday did not rule on his cause and manner of death pending further investigation, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Orange Line service was temporarily halted, but all trains were on the move and normal service was being restored by 4:25 a.m., the CTA reported. Shuttle buses were available between Western and Ashland, and the transit agency was recommending the No. 62 Archer bus as an alternate route during the delay.
