Stuck train horn blares for blocks

Train horn blares nonstop for 30 minutes (CNN/WLS)

HINSDALE, Ill. (CNN/WLS) — What some people thought was an odd time for a tornado siren turned out to be a blaring horn.

The horn got stuck on this train stopped in Hinsdale, Ill.

For blocks, people could hear the horn blaring nonstop for 30 minutes.

A company spokesman says it happens from time to time.

Because regulations prevent the company from running the train without a working horn, they had to bring in a second locomotive to tow it away. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
