A woman bicyclist escaped with minor injuries Friday afternoon when she was struck by a TRAX light-rail train in Salt Lake City.

"She apparently didn’t see the train and it struck her, dragging her a short distance as her bike went under the train," Carpenter said.

The woman, in her 20s, was transported to University Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and was reported in good condition, Salt Lake City police confirmed.
