According to the Chicago Tribune, CTA has fired the driver of the Blue Line train that derailed at O'Hare late last month. 

The driver later admitted to having dozed off at the controls when the incident occurred. 

Brittney Haywood, 25—the train operator—has now officially been terminated as a CTA employee after she failed to show up for her disciplinary hearing last Thursday (April 3). 

She didn't give them much choice!

The CTA now claims it will make rules for train operators "more stringent."
