Person hit, killed by FrontRunner train

SALT LAKE CITY — A person was hit and killed by a FrontRunner train in a suspected suicide on Saturday, the Utah Transit Authority said.

An alert was sent out by UTA at 6:32 a.m., saying riders should expect significant delays due to a “train vs. person incident.” The location was not immediately available.

The original alert was updated minutes later to specify the delay affected all stops for southbound trains between the Murray Central Station and Provo Central Station.

A bus bridge was activated around 7 a.m., ferrying travelers between Salt Lake City and Provo, until about 10 a.m., when the service was canceled.

UTA alerted passengers they should “continue to expect delays in both directions as trains resume normal service” throughout the morning.
