Service along the South Shore Line was disrupted Monday morning when an overhead wire issue sent sparks over a train.

Due to the incident, passengers on westbound train 102 were bused between the Carroll Avenue and Ogden Dunes stations Monday morning, according to an alert from the South Shore Line. All other trains should ran with normal service.

The incident happened near the Dune Park Station in Indiana and was caused by an issue with the overhead wires, according to the South Shore Line. Additional information was not immediately available.
