CHICAGO -- The train stop at O'Hare Airport remains closed as a result of Monday's derailment, but the first lawsuit has been filed by a passenger.

Niakesha Thomas says when the train derailed, she was thrown from her seat. She says once the impact was over, the lights went out. Thomas says she knows, even though she's the first person to sue, she won't be the last.

The NTSB is still investigating the cause of the derailment. Thomas didn't say how much she's suing for.
