South Jordan Police Sgt. Steven Parks looks over a car that was struck by a Union Pacific train near 10200 South and 300 West at about 6 p.m. Monday. The driver of the car, Feng Tan, 37, managed to escape with only a few scratches, said South Jordan police detective Keith Livingston. Paramedics took Tan to nearby Jordan Valley Hospital, where he was treated and later released. Livingston said Tan failed to stop at the railroad crossing. Three Alta High School graduates were killed at the same crossing on New Year's Eve 1995 when their car was hit by an Amtrak train.
