A child and an adult were hurt this morning when the minivan in which they were riding was struck by a Metra train on Chicago's Far South Side.
The two were taken to local hospitals, the child in serious-to-critical condition and the adult in good condition, said Fire Department Chief Joe Roccasalva. He said no one aboard the train, which was deadheading to Joliet, was hurt.
The train hit the minivan about 7:50 a.m. at 97th Street and Vincennes Avenue in the Longwood Manor neighborhood, authorities said.
The crash was not expected to disrupt morning commuter service, he said.
