Utah Transit Authority spokesman Remi Barron said the train struck a Union Pacific automobile. It was not immediately known whether the injured were in the train or the vehicle that was struck.

As of 1:30 p.m., Center Street was closed as officials cleared the scene. Passengers on the disabled FrontRunner train involved in the accident were bused to the nearby Woods Cross Station, according to UTA officials. Other Frontrunner travelers heading north were also bused to the Woods Cross Station.

The Tribune will provide more information as it becomes available.
