CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say service has been restored to a branch of the Metra commuter line that was closed when a semi-truck smashed into a pillar that holds up electrical wiring.

Chicago police spokeswoman Amina Greer says 40-year-old Bryan Davis was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and unlawful damage to a structure. He refused medical treatment on the scene.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. Sunday, disrupting service on the South Chicago branch. Metra spokesman Tom Miller says the branch provides service for eight stations between 93rd Street and Stony Island.

Metra says service was restored early Monday in time for the morning commute.
