Metra trains are moving once again after an incident on the BNSF line in Hinsdale led to major delays and cancellations.

Trains in both directions were stopped for more than an hour after the incident, which occurred around 3 p.m. Monday, in Hinsdale. Around 5 p.m., outbound trains started moving, slowly. Two of the three tracks reopened.

Police say Train No. 1268 struck the pedestrian, who was killed.

Metra tweeted the delays of 90-120 minutes are "significant," and is "urging passengers to stay downtown, consider using UP-W out of Olgilvie Transportation Center, or use other modes of transportation."
