OREM, Utah, April 18, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A man was fatally injured in Orem Wednesday morning after walking in front of a Frontrunner train.

Carl Arky, UTA spokesperson, posted a tweet confirming the incident which happened near 1350 W. 900 S. about 4:50 a.m.

“Due to a train vs. train incident a bus bridge has been activated from Provo-American Fork. Expect delays of 30 minutes NB from Orem, with additional wait time as part of the bus bridge,” Arky wrote.

Investigators say surveillance cameras show two men making their way to the platform just as Frontrunner approached.

Arky told the media the man who was hit appeared not notice the train’s arrival.

The victim’s name has yet to be released.

The bus bridges have since been cancelled.
