LAYTON — A woman was hit by a FrontRunner train while trying to cross the tracks on Friday morning.
“The train made contact with a pedestrian and she was transported to an area hospital with injuries,” said Gerry Carpenter, UTA spokesman.
Carpenter said the train was the southbound FrontRunner, which is scheduled to arrive at 10:36 a.m. at the Layton station, 150 S. Main St.
Utah Transit Authority and Layton police are still investigating the incident, but Lt. Travis Lyman said the train appeared to have clipped the woman as she tried to cross the tracks.
“She was conscious when they took her to the hospital,” he said.
Police did not have the name of the woman at this time.
Lyman said the woman was hit as she tried to cross the northern crossing, but he was not sure if she was trying to catch the train.
Carpenter said that UTA placed passengers from the southbound FrontRunner on buses to Farmington. The regular service has now resumed.
