CHICAGO (AP/PIX11) — Newly released video shows the terrifying moment a train derailed, crashing into Chicago O’Hare Airport.

The commuter train, which was traveling at a normal speed of 25 mph before the crash, jumped the tracks Tuesday and went barreling up an escalator.

More than 30 people sustained minor injuries during the accident that took place around 3 a.m.

The union representing the train operator has said fatigue may have played a role in the crash at the nation’s second busiest airport.

The crash happens about 20 seconds into the video below.
