Delays persist on TRAX after derailment, train collision in West Valley City

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah —Riders can expect delays on the Green Line Friday morning after two TRAX trains collided Thursday evening in West Valley City.

UTA said a northbound train coming around a curve derailed, then hit a southbound train in the area of 3100 South Constitution Blvd. Fox 13 first heard report of the crash around 7:45 p.m.

Nineteen people were on the second train. No one was injured, but a power pole came down and passengers had to wait for the power to be shut off before they could exit the train.

As of 8:25 a.m. Friday, a bus bridge is in place between Redwood Junction and West Valley Central.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, but UTA said they won't have answer for several weeks.
