UPDATED: THURSDAY 7/28/22 9:15 P.M.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – A woman who was initially in extremely critical condition after being hit by a FrontRunner train has died Thursday evening, according to UTA.

UTA said the incident happened around 2:20 p.m. Thursday afternoon when the woman and a male companion approached the railroad crossing at 800 South 600 West.

After going through the zig zag walkway, which is designed to alert pedestrians they are approaching a crossing, the two walked past the crossing gate where the light and bells had been activated.

They approached UTA’s alignment and waited for a Union Pacific train on UP’s alignment to clear the crossing. With the UP train appearing to clear the alignment, the female moved forward into the UTA alignment, into the path of an oncoming FrontRunner train.

The woman was struck and critically injured, later succumbing to her injuries.

The identity of the woman has not yet been released.

No other details have been released.

ORIGINAL STORY: BREAKING: Woman hit by FrontRunner train in SLC

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – A young woman is in critical condition after being hit by a FrontRunner train Thursday afternoon.

Officials say a couple was waiting for a train to pass to cross inside the crossing gate at 800 south and 600 west around 2:20 p.m.

Once the train passed, the woman stepped onto the Trax without looking to her right and that’s when a southbound Frontrunner crashed into her.

“It was really the first step or two but that’s all it takes,” said Carl Arky, a UTA spokesperson. “There’s a train coming — the train can’t stop, the train can’t slow down.”

Arky said no one else was hurt.

A bus bridge is now in place between Salt Lake City Central and Murray causing major delays.

ABC4 has a crew heading to the scene to gather more information.
