A TRAX train derailed in front of the Gateway mall in Salt Lake City Thursday morning. Utah Transit Authority Police Lt. Alex Blauer said a switch malfunctioned at the intersection of North Temple and 400 West causing one train car to go left while the other car went right, when in actuality both trains were supposed to go left. About 30 people were on the train at the time, and one person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Trains running to the Salt Lake Central Station saw several hours of delays, but all other trains continued on their regular schedule.
