(NEWSER) – A pretty crazy train accident in Chicago this morning somehow did not cause any serious injuries: A Chicago Transit Authority train derailed as it pulled into the O'Hare International Airport station around 3am, and, well, we'll let the Fire Department commissioner take it from here: "The train actually climbed over the last stop, jumped up on the sidewalk, and then went up the stairs and escalators," says Jose Santiago. Thirty-two people were hurt, but none seriously, NBC Chicago reports. "Fortunately nobody was on the staircase," a Fire Department spokesperson tells Reuters. "Anybody on the staircase probably would have been killed."
