Police lights breaking news

SUNSET — Officials say a FrontRunner train struck and killed a pedestrian in Sunset Monday afternoon.

The Utah Transit Authority said in a press release Monday afternoon that a 17-year-old boy was hit and killed near 1300 N. 498 West in Sunset. The person killed was seen on the train tracks around 3 p.m.

The agency said in the release that the incident “does not appear to be accidental.”

No other injuries were reported.

The train was taken out of operation as of Monday afternoon, and the train’s operator will be offered counseling if needed, UTA said in the press release.

Riders should expect delays to FrontRunner services, according to Carl Arky, a UTA spokesperson.

Full FrontRunner service will resume Monday evening around 6 p.m. As of 5 p.m., FrontRunner riders will be able to use the train from Clearfield to Provo and from Roy to Ogden. In the meantime, a bus will serve as a bridge between the Clearfield and Roy stops.

The same tweet indicated that a bus bridge was activated between Clearfield and Roy.
