A train derailment on a Union Pacific Railroad route forced FrontRunner southbound passengers to leave the commuter train Tuesday morning, according to the Utah Transit Authority.

UTA initially bussed FrontRunner passengers from the Clearfield station to Salt Lake City’s North Temple station, but, as of 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, all trains were back up and running at restricted speeds.

The delay was caused around 3 a.m. after a three-car Union Pacific train derailment near 1100 North and 1100 West in Salt Lake City. Union Pacific officials said they are still investigating what caused the cars to come off the tracks. Officials said the three cars were empty, and no injuries have been reported.
