WOODS CROSS, Utah - A Utah Transit Authority FrontRunner train collided with a semi-trailer in Woods Cross Saturday morning, and fortunately no one was injured.

The South Davis Metro fire department said the crash took place at 1100 North and 2600 South, and they asked motorists to avoid the area as crews responded.

A semi hauling two FedEx trailers was trying to cross the tracks, and while the cab made it across, the trailers did not. Some passengers said they were told the truck had gotten stuck on the tracks, but the cause of the crash has not been officially determined.

Bountiful police dispatchers say no one was injured.

"All of a sudden it was an immediate crash, everyone was jolted," one passenger told Fox 13 News.

UTA set up a bus bridge to ferry train passengers between Woods Cross and North Temple street, but that bus bridge was later canceled as normal services resumed.
