Woman sustains serious injuries in crash with TRAX train 

MIDVALE, UT – An 18-year-old woman was sent to the hospital after she entered the path of a Redline TRAX train at the Bingham Junction Station Wednesday. 

This collision was reported before 8 a.m., as indicated in a Gephardt Daily report. The safety equipment, which includes flashing lights and bells, was properly functioning. So it is not immediately clear why the woman walked in front of the train. However, officials did say she may have used an iPod, which could have impacted her hearing. 

Officials have not confirmed if this was a suicide attempt. At this time, the woman is in serious but stable condition.
