PROVO, Utah (ABC4 News) – Saturday afternoon, a 21-year-old woman and a 3-year-old child were trying to cross over to the other side of Frontrunner train tracks in Provo at about 500 south and 900 west. Despite the crossing gate being down and the bells going off, the woman still attempted to go around it.
Both were hit by a front runner train heading southbound. The child was life-flighted to Primary Children’s hospital, and the 21-year-old woman was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Both are critical condition.
Utah Transit Authority officials say, never cross train tracks while the bar is down.
