Metra UP/West trains delayed after freight train hits car

(WEST CHICAGO) No injuries have been reported after a freight train struck a car early Thursday afternoon in the western suburbs, but several trains on the Metra UP/West Line are facing major delays.

The crash happened at Highlake and Sunset in unincorporated West Chicago about 12:20 p.m., DuPage County sheriff’s spokeswoman Dawn Domrose said. No injuries were reported.

Highlake Road was temporarily closed from Sunset to Main Street, but has since reopened.

Metra UP/West line trains are operating between 30 and 85 minutes behind schedule as a result of the crash, according to Metra’s website.

It is not known how long the delays will last, according to Metra.
