A Chicago Transit Authority train car rests on an escalator at the O'Hare Airport station after it derailed early Monday in Chicago. More than 30 people were injured after the train "climbed over the last stop, jumped up on the sidewalk and then went up the stairs and escalator," according to Chicago Fire Commissioner Jose Santiago. The operator of the train may have dozed off, a union official said. The woman said she had worked extensive overtime recently and was "extremely tired" at the time of the accident, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 President Robert Kelly told a news conference.
