SALT LAKE CITY — One person was killed and four others were injured Sunday in a car crash in Salt Lake City.

Just before 5 p.m., a white car and a black SUV collided at 900 West and North Temple.

The man driving the car died, and two adults and two children in the SUV were taken to the hospital. One was in critical condition but has since improved to "very serious." Two sustained minor to moderate injuries, and the fourth person's condition was not known.

The portion of Utah Transit Authority's TRAX green line was shut down between the accident and the Salt Lake City International Airport, but UTA put a bus bridge in place. The rest of the route remained open.

A crash reconstruction team is working to determine what caused the crash, with both SLC and UTA police involved.

The victim's name has not yet been released.
