Service on the Green Line to Salt Lake City International Airport was disrupted until a little after 10 a.m. Sunday. A UTA Twitter posting advised Green Line riders to plan for 10 minute delays to the regular service schedule until further notice.
Arky said no injuries were sustained by passengers on the train and the driver of the car also emerged from the incident uninjured. He said investigators believe the driver failed to heed the traffic signal due to fatigue and impacted the train at a speed of around 40 mph.
