TRAX accident

SALT LAKE CITY – At least one person suffered injuries in a crash involving a TRAX train and car in Salt Lake City Thursday night, and officials with the Utah Transit Authority said riders could expect delays as a result.

The crash occurred in the area of 200 South Main Street, and fire personnel who arrived on scene said the injuries of those involved did not appear to be serious.

A UTA spokesman said a 70-year-old man was driving the car and turned in front of a moving TRAX train, but officials later stated the driver was a 56-year-old man and that the 70-year-old was in the back seat. The two are believed to be related.

A photo from the scene shows the aftermath of the crash. UTA tweeted at 8:30 p.m.: “Delays of 10-15 minutes on all TRAX lines due to earlier incident.”
