NBC Chicago spoke to a TSA agent who wished to remain anonymous.
“I thought it was just a hard stop at the train didn’t even slow down when it was coming in,” the agent said. “It was chaos. People were freaking out. Trying to figure out what happened. Trying to make sure everyone was ok.”
The injuries are not thought to be serious.
