CHICAGO — A Chicago Police officer chasing a suspect drove around closed gates at the Kedzie Brown Line CTA station Friday, crashing into a train and leaving her unmarked police car a snarl of twisted metal.

But miraculously, the officer survived without life-threatening injuries.

The crash left rush hour riders scrambling to find another way home and affected service until about 7:45 p.m.
