CHICAGO A 51-year-old truck driver from Michigan has been cited for negligent driving after ramming his semitrailer into a Chicago Transit Authority train station.
Chicago police say Donald Wells of Metamora, Michigan, received the traffic ticket Sunday. No court date was immediately available.
Police say their investigation of the Friday evening accident is ongoing, and Wells could still face criminal charges.
Wells was briefly hospitalized after his truck careened off an expressway. After his release, he was led away by police in handcuffs.
Two pedestrians were killed and 21 others were injured. Most have been released, but three remained hospitalized at Mount Sinai Hospital on Sunday.
