A 19-year-old man has been discharged from University Hospital after having been listed in serious condition since a car-train accident Saturday.
Brent P. Brainich, whose car was hit broadside by a train Saturday at 11600 South and 500 West, was released Monday, said a floor nurse.Larry Olson, Salt Lake County fire battalion chief, said the train was moving south at an estimated 55 mph. The car was heading east and was hit on the side but near the rear, which led authorities to believe Brainich was trying to outrun the train, Olson said. Brainich's address was not released by police.
According to Olson, the car was dragged 20 feet before it hit a concrete pillar.
