CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Services have resumed after a CTA Yellow Line train derailed Tuesday afternoon in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.

The train derailed while approaching the Howard station at 7519 N. Paulina St. about 2:10 p.m., according to CTA spokesperson Catherine Hosinki. Workers were soon able to get the train back on track at 5:30 p.m., Hosinski added.

The three passengers on the two-car train were able to go to the head car and get off onto the platform, CTA spokesperson Tammy Chase said. No one was injured.

Chase said it's "too soon to say" what caused the derailment.

Service was suspended on the Yellow Line after the incident, and Red and Purple line trains were experiencing "significant" delays, but have since returned to "normal opeartions," according to the CTA.
