An accident that left a man pinned under a TRAX train Monday morning shut down all TRAX lines for about an hour and significantly delayed commute times.
According to UTA spokesman Gerry Carpenter, a white male in his early 20s stepped in front of a TRAX train near 2100 South and 200 West around 6:30 a.m. The man reportedly was stuck beneath the train for about 45 minutes before being rescued by South Salt Lake fire crews.
The accident forced the complete closure of 2100 South, as well as all three TRAX lines. In response, UTA brought in buses for commuters although significant delays resulted.
