A TRAX train collided Tuesday with a car that crossed down guard arms in West Jordan, seriously injuring the car's driver.
The accident in the intersection of 8600 South and 3200 West happened at 9:23 a.m., said West Jordan police Sgt. Drew Sanders. The Dodge Neon was traveling east on 8600 South, parallel with the train. At the intersection, which has a stoplight, the car turned right, crashing through the guard arms and into the train.
The 29-year-old male driver the car's only occupant was seriously injured and taken to a hospital. His injuries did not appear life-threatening, Sanders said. Drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash, and police were investigating why the driver turned into the train.
