The scene is a short distance from the site where a Chicago Transit Authority Yellow Line train hit a piece of snow-moving equipment while on its way into the Howard terminal in an unrelated incident a little over three hours earlier.

A total of 38 people were injured in that incident, and 23 of those 38 people were hospitalized.
