WOODS CROSS — Police in Woods Cross are investigating a “possible suicide” involving a train and a pedestrian Monday morning.

The incident occurred in the area of 880 West and 1500 South, and Fox 13 News first heard report of the crash around 8 a.m.

The Utah Transit Authority stated the incident involved a person and a Union Pacific train.

The crash prevented FrontRunner trains from moving through the area for some time, and a bus bridge was put in place. As of 9 a.m. UTA says trains are moving through the area again, but riders should expect delays of 10-15 minutes.

Fox 13 News will update this story as more details emerge.

Fox 13 News does not generally cover apparent suicides unless there is a broader impact to the public, such as a police response or delays to train service.
