SALT LAKE CITY — A man died after exiting a TRAX train at the Mall/City Center stop Saturday night after he fell between the train's cars.

The individual has been identified as 61 year old Blair Provstgaard of Salt Lake City.

Authorities believe he may have hit his head, and the TRAX operator was unaware he had fallen before moving the train.

A bus bridge will served the area between the Gallivan Center and Temple Square, as the train was not able to be moved while the investigation continued.

The incident is still under investigation.
