A man was fatally struck by a Blue Line train Monday afternoon at the Montrose stop on the Northwest Side.
At 12:54 p.m., officers responded to a call of a man who jumped in front of a train at the station at 4600 W. Montrose Ave., according to Chicago police.
The 58-year-old, who lived in the Northwest Side Jefferson Park neighborhood, was pronounced dead at 1:26 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy Tuesday ruled his death a suicide.
As of 3:44 p.m., normal Blue Line service was being restored and trains were running with residual delays, according to an alert from the CTA.
