MURRAY — A car bypassing railroad crossing arms was hit by a TRAX train Wednesday, not far from the site where a woman was killed attempting the same thing in August.
UTA spokesman Gerry Carpenter said the 83-year-old man drove around the crossing arms at 6100 South and 300 West just after 1:30 p.m. The man was transported to an area hospital, though his injuries were not life-threatening.
No one on the train was injured.
Carpenter said UTA will be re-evaluating its safety measures in the area.
"People seem to be missing the traffic signals, the gate arms and the flashing lights," he said. "We'll be taking a close look at this intersection and crossing."
Lorna Boguslawski, 72, of Jerome, Idaho, was killed Aug. 15 in the same area when she was hit by a southbound train.
