A CTA vehicle was stolen early Friday near the 95th Street Red Line station and crashed nearby.
An employee left the SUV’s trunk open about 4:40 a.m. as they swept and removed trash in the 9400 block of South Lafayette Avenue, according to a statement from Chicago police.
That’s when someone entered the running SUV and drove east, abandoning the vehicle at 95th and Calumet, police said.
Video from ABC7-Chicago showed the CTA vehicle resting against a tree.
No one was injured, and no one was in custody, police said.
